Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during April - June 2018
  1. I spent 265 hours in 2Q18 on this Project, or related work (903 hours YTD, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2017). That's 82% of the planned effort (96% YTD). Overall, 52% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 49% YTD) - as against 54% planned (46% YTD).
  2. My planned effort was 25 hours / week: approximately what I’d expect to put in to a part-time PhD. Unfortunately, unlike last quarter, I was nowhere near achieving it. However, most of the effort expended was on relevant items!
  3. The main focus of the quarter was that I continued updating 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.
  4. The detailed list below reflects the Notes updated together with associated papers where I could be bothered to record time against these separately.
  5. In addition:-
