It is really a sub-topic in my <a name="1"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_5/Notes_519_43195450.htm">Philosophy of Religion</A><SUP>1</SUP> project, with its penultimate chapter considering the metaphysical possibility of resurrection. </li><li>While I m interested in the topic of my research in its own right, I think when I ve sorted it out a bit, and have something to say, I ll want to engage with other philosophers active in this field  and re-starting a PhD at Birkbeck or elsewhere might be the only effective way to do this. </li><li>While a PhD is not an end in itself, and certainly not the ultimate aim of my doing philosophy, it s still true that a PhD would teach me research techniques, provide focus and direction, and furnish a professional qualification should I want to publish any results in this or any other area of philosophy.</li><li>The jumping-off point for my thesis is <a name="2"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_7/Notes_733_42465972.htm">here</A><SUP>2</SUP>, and a progress dashboard is <a name="3"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_10/Notes_1024_43195450.htm">here</A><SUP>3</SUP>.

That s 103% of the planned effort (105% YTD). Overall, 53% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 48% YTD)  as against 43% planned (42% YTD). </li><li>My planned effort is now 25 hours / week: approximately what I d expect to put in to a part-time PhD. And, for once, I managed to exceed it, and that mostly on relevant items! </li><li>Relatively little time was spent on <em>Aeon</em> reading irrelevant to my research. Indeed, I ve not had time to read <em>Aeon</em> regularly. </li><li>The main focus of the quarter was that I updated almost all my Notes on Personal Identity. As noted last time, I ve decided to change my approach in the short term. Rather than spending ages researching the reading lists, I ll just list those books / papers on the relevant topic that I ve actually read, and supply brief text. As a second pass I ll use what I ve read to update that text. I approximated to this plan  updating all my Notes to reflect the new format  but didn t quite have time to add all the items read, though I did research some of the reading lists for those I did add the items read. </li><li>Read <a name="19"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23288.htm">Barua (Ankur) - Revisiting the Rationality of Reincarnation-Talk</A>", which needs a file-note. </li><li>Started reading <BR>&rarr; <a name="274"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6699.htm">Harari (Yuval Noah) - Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind</A>", recommended by Naomi. <BR>&rarr; <a name="20"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23314.htm">Midgley (Mary) - Biotechnology and Monstrosity: Why We Should Pay Attention to the 'Yuk Factor'</A>". <BR>&rarr; <a name="21"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23280.htm">Price (Huw), Cave (Stephen), Iida (Fumiya), Etc. - Preparing for the future: artificial intelligence and us: Part 1</A>". <BR>&rarr; <a name="22"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23286.htm">Price (Huw), Cave (Stephen), Iida (Fumiya), Etc. - Preparing for the future: artificial intelligence and us: Part 2</A>". <BR>&rarr; <a name="23"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23249.htm">Rodger (Daniel), Blackshaw (Bruce P.) & Wilcox (Clinton) - Why arguments against infanticide remain convincing</A>". </li><li>Carried out further work on <a name="24"></a>"<A HREF = "../../Abstracts/Abstract_20/Abstract_20784.htm">Olson (Eric) - Personal Identity - Oxford Bibliographies Online</A>"; enough for now. </li><li>Finished reading <a name="275"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6557.htm">O'Neill (Cathy) - Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy</A>", required reading for all new King s Cambridge entrants. </li><li>Finished reading <a name="276"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6559.htm">Kazez (Jean) - The Philosophical Parent: Asking the Hard Questions About Having and Raising Children</A>", which requires a file-note. </li><li>Read <a name="277"></a>"<A HREF = "../../BookSummaries/BookSummary_06/BookPaperAbstracts/BookPaperAbstracts_6522.htm">Edmonds (David) & Eidinow (John) - Wittgenstein's Poker</A>". </li><li>Catalogued a few more of the books downloaded from Springer at the end of 2015.</li><li>The detailed list below reflects the Notes updated together with associated papers where I could be bothered to record time against these separately. </li><li>Progress between reports can be obtained from the relevant section of my <a name="5"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_9/Notes_975_43195450.htm">Summary Task List</A><SUP>5</SUP>.

As such I require rigorous focus on the priority tasks, books and papers. Lower-priority reading is not likely to get a look in, so will be cut. </li><li>First of all, continually review the Note describing my <a name="6"></a><A HREF = "../Notes_0/Notes_7_43105008.htm">Current Beliefs</A><SUP>8</SUP> on the topic of Personal Identity, and ensure the associated Notes have some text.

This would require discipline, in that interesting new stuff is always turning up, and would be an iterative process. Further, given I m not getting any younger, it could also be wasting time which should be focussed on using the most relevant materials. </li><li>So, if what I ve read and written on  in the form of particular papers on a particular topic  is most relevant, I ll  process that, but otherwise will start anew. </li><li>As far as effort is concerned, I ve retained the plan at 25 hours / week.
