Detailed progress is shown on the sub-reports. </li><li>This summary report should highlight whether my focus has become unbalanced or otherwise inappropriate to the achievement of my major goals. </li><li>As these reports are rather a pain to generate, I now produce them quarterly, rather than monthly. </li></ul><BR><B><U>Projects in Progress</B></U><ul type="disc"><li>I have ten projects on which I would like to spend my time, which is too many. I currently split them into three groups. </li><li>The first two groups always have effort planned, but the final group in general does not. </li><li>The first group relates to my primary (project) life-goals; the second relates to lesser things I really want to address; the <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_512_1">final group</A></U><SUB>1</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_512_1"></A> relates to those I d like to look into if I get ahead on the other projects. <BR><BR><B><U>Primary Projects</B></U><ol type="1"><li><a name="123"></a><U>Personal Identity</U><SUP>2</SUP>: This is the subject that ought to grab most of my attention, as it is the topic of my yet-to-be-completed <a name="123"></a><U>PhD Thesis</U><SUP>3</SUP>. I need to achieve something in philosophy, as this is the only one of my endeavours that promises a professional outcome (in the sense of being one of more than merely personal interest).</li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Web-tools</U><SUP>4</SUP>: This project is intended to assist with the prosecution of philosophical research. It is fundamentally an enabling project, though one I hope will have general metaphilosophical implications. The other two projects in this group are test cases of the method, as well as worthwhile studies in their own right. </li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Philosophy of Religion</U><SUP>5</SUP>: On and off, this represents the main preoccupation of my adult life (work and family aside). Eventually, I intend to follow up in some detail interesting topics from the <I>Philosophy of Religion</I> module from the MA in <I>Philosophy and Religion</I> at Heythrop College, London University that I tasted at the end of 2010. </li></ol><BR><B><U>Secondary Projects</B></U><ol start = "4" type="1"><li><a name="123"></a><U>Music</U><SUP>6</SUP>: Improve my competence as an oboist, and learn the piano. I have recommenced regular oboe-practice in my new den, and have purchased an electronic piano  also installed therein  so hopefully some progress will be made on piano-playing.</li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Bridge</U><SUP>7</SUP>: I still want to become an expert player but have recognised that this isn t going to happen without it becoming my main priority and, since I need to respect the fact that I m getting older and need to progress my philosophical endeavours while I can, I ve abandoned this project for the time being, though might play at most once a week socially if asked. </li></ol><BR><B><U>Other Projects</B></U><ol start = "6" type="1"><li><a name="123"></a><U>Consciousness Studies</U><SUP>8</SUP>: A supporting project for both Personal Identity and Philosophy of Religion. </li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Languages</U><SUP>9</SUP>: Gain at least a rudimentary understanding of 24 diverse languages  for practical and philosophical purposes. </li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Mathematics</U><SUP>10</SUP>: Revive / improve my mathematical competence with a view to the use of mathematics as a tool in my various other projects. Also  now that I m 64  useful for keeping various bits of my brain <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_512_11">functioning</A></U><SUB>11</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_512_11"></A>. </li><li><a name="123"></a><U>HiQ</U><SUP>12</SUP>: Enjoy and contribute to the intellectual society of ISPE and Mensa (mostly in abeyance, though I ve re-revived my membership of ISPE). </li><li><a name="123"></a><U>Chess</U><SUP>13</SUP>: Improve my standard of play so I can perform acceptably in the Essex, London, Middlesex & leagues (whenever I m ready). </li></ol><BR></li><li>These projects are (approximately, in their respective groups) in order of decreasing priority, yet in practise the amount of effort expended on them has failed to respect this. </li><li>Unfortunately, time isn t available at the moment  given my other commitments  to spend as much time on Philosophy of Religion as I would like. I have further cut it back to 1 hour a week. </li><li>My intention was always to restrict the effort on Bridge, and focus on Personal Identity. Historically, this resolve has seldom come to anything, and while I now believe that for me Bridge is sufficiently enjoyable and relaxing to be self-justifying, I ve decided to axe it as far as serious competition is concerned for the next few years. However, I ve scheduled 3 hours a week for social play, but hope that such opportunities won t arise. </li><li>I <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_512_14">re-joined ISPE</A></U><SUB>14</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_512_14"></A> in 2017 and have renewed my membership for 2018, but can spare no scheduled time for taking part. </li><li>I have ignored the various infrastructural elements of my life in these reports  in particular family life, household management, general reading, culture, current affairs, walking the dog and such like. </li><li>However, things continued to be troubling in 2Q18. The situation with <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_512_15">the house</A></U><SUB>15</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_512_15"></A> is much worse than we first thought and we ve now appointed <A HREF = "http://bakersofdanbury.co.uk/" TARGET = "_top">Bakers of Danbury</A> (http://bakersofdanbury.co.uk/) to sort it out. Plans are now in place, but need ratification by the conservation officer. Finance is a major issue as lenders are suspicious of broken listed buildings. </li><li>This report and the sub-reports obtained by following the links immediately above show the current status.

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).<!-- FUNCTOR_END --></li><li>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! </li><li>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 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="123"></a>Current Beliefs on the topic of Personal Identity, and ensure the associated Notes have some text. Let Sophie have a look at it, and consider submission to <em>Aeon</em>. </li><li>An  ideal next step (and one previously suggested) is to ensure that everything of relevance that I have actually read is written up and incorporated in my Notes database and only later  and secondly  consider anything that I have not yet read. 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 had to reduce the plan from <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_518_9">25 hours / week</A></U><SUB>9</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_518_9"></A> to 20 hours / week on account of the distractions noted elsewhere. </li><li>So, despite the above caveat, the primary tasks for the next quarter will be to complete a full review and update of the <A Href="../../../Notes/Notes_Jump_1.htm" TARGET = "_top">Notes</A> I ve created on Personal Identity, focusing on those directly referenced by my <a name="123"></a>Current Beliefs. </li><li>Following that, the focus (if you can call it that) will be on the following <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_518_11">bumper list</A></U><SUB>11</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_518_11"></A>:- <BR><!-- FUNCTOR_ID=09 --> <ol type="I"><li>Continue with my <a name="123"></a>Thesis; in particular fill out those sections that I can write something on without further research.

I ve hardly played since I left school, where I showed some aptitude  especially in my first season when, in the 3rd year at Grammar school, I won the North Gloucestershire under-15s <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_1">championship</A></U><SUB>1</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_1"></A>, but things never really took off. For instance, I performed very badly in the West of England under-15s and only ever came runner-up in the North Gloucestershire under-18s. I played in the local adult league while at school and my grade meandered up to 158, if I remember correctly. While at school, I played on a low board for Gloucestershire seniors and captained the Gloucestershire juniors, though not from top board. I played in a number of congresses at school and immediately after university, with mixed results. </li><li>Anyway, I effectively gave the game up and switched to bridge at Cambridge, playing chess on only three occasions for the <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_2">King s</A></U><SUB>2</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_2"></A> team. </li><li>My trouble with chess was, I think, that I had a natural ability to calculate variations which stood me in good stead against players who knew next to no theory  but against stronger players I never got into positions where calculation did more than tell me I was losing. I only ever used to play matches, never practice games, and have never actually read a chess book beyond the first few pages. </li><li>So, I don't want a repetition of any of that. If I return to the game, I'd like to learn to play properly. The question is how? I have a collection of (mostly old) books, but I've never been a keen reader of chess books  I can't easily envisage what's going on without either a lot of effort or setting the position up on the board. </li><li>I suspected some chess software might be the best way forward  what I need is something that's fairly interactive and which will get me to learn both the principles of positional play and some opening theory, as well as play some practise games, in as painless a manner as possible. After advice from <em>The London Chess Centre</em> (follow <A HREF = "http://shop.chess.co.uk/" TARGET = "_top">Link</A> (http://shop.chess.co.uk/)), I purchased some software, as below. Unfortunately, the plan to make use of it hasn t come to much. </li><li>A recent idea was to learn to play blindfold chess, and I started reading a <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_3">book</A></U><SUB>3</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_3"></A>, but that hasn t come to much either. </li><li>The incentive to return to the game is that my brother-in-law runs a team in the Middlesex and London Leagues. </li><li>also, one of my bridge partners is also thinking of returning to Chess, having been of a similar standard to me, though having played more recently. </li><li>The chess scene in Billericay seems somewhat <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_851_4">unexciting</A></U><SUB>4</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_851_4"></A>. </li><li>See <A HREF = "http://www.essexchess.org.uk/" TARGET = "_top">Link</A> (http://www.essexchess.org.uk/) for the <em>Essex Chess</em> site. </li></ul><BR><!-- FUNCTOR_ID=08 --> <B><U>Summary of Progress during 17Q4 - 18Q3</B></U><ol type="1"><li>I have spent 6 hours YTD on this Project, or related work, where for "YTD" - Year to Date - I mean the (academic) year that commenced in October 2017).

This chapter will sort out the topic of discussion for the Thesis as a whole. </li><li><B>What is a Person?</B>: This Chapter will canvass the various views and consider how important issues in this area are to my main concern of our identity. </li><li><B>Basic Metaphysical Issues</B>: Substances and sortals are central to the persistence of anything, and in particular to my claim that persons are phase sortals of human animals (the substances). I need to address the concept of a SOUL as souls are the major counter-claim to the persisting entity being an animal; or at least popularly so. The question of Natural Kinds arises in considering whether PERSON is a natural kind concept. </li><li><B>Persistence and Time</B>: A number of thought experiments that feature in the following chapter seem to fail if perdurantism is true (because the reduplication objections fail). Depending on whether any of these are critical to my arguments, I may need to consider the impact of perdurantism. But this complex area may be a step too far within a fairly limited word-count. I m also unsure whether it should feature before or after the account of Thought Experiments. </li><li><B>Animalism and Arguments for it</B>: This Chapter describes what Animalism is, with an excursus on animals and organisms and their persistence. It puts forward the arguments in favour of animalism, those against being reserved for a later Chapter. It focuses on the account of <A HREF = "../../../Authors/O/Author_Olson (Eric).htm">Eric Olson</A>, the primary contemporary exponent of Animalism. </li><li><B>The Constitution View and Arguments for it</B>: This Chapter gives an account of <A HREF = "../../../Authors/B/Author_Baker (Lynne Rudder).htm">Lynne Rudder Baker</A> s thesis that human persons are not identical to human animals, but are  temporarily at least  constituted by them. </li><li><B>Arguments against Animalism</B>: A discussion of the arguments against animalism, as given by those of anti-animalist persuasion and defended by the principal animalists (with a focus on Olson), with a critique. </li><li><B>Arguments against the Constitution View</B>: A discussion of the arguments against the Constitution View, focusing on the principal animalists, with a critique. In particular, I intend to critique Olson s <a name="123"></a> thinking animal argument against the Constitution View (though I think this argument is unnecessary for Olson to establish the case for Animalism).</li><li><B>Thought Experiments</B>: Any account of personal identity needs to give an account of what is going on in the various thought experiments that have been thought relevant to the topic. It s also the area that s most fun. Indeed, I think that the entire Thesis will be an exercise in inference to the best explanation. It needs to account for our intuitions (if there is a universal response) or explain them away as confused. I will firstly briefly consider the propriety of using thought experiments in this domain of enquiry, and then consider the usual suspects, such as: <ul type="disc"><li><a name="123"></a>Fission, <a name="123"></a>fusion and <a name="123"></a>replication in general</li><li><a name="123"></a>Commissurotomy</li><li><a name="123"></a>Multiple Personality Disorder</li><li><a name="123"></a>Brain-state Transfer</li><li><a name="123"></a>Brain Transplants</li><li><a name="123"></a>Teletransportation</li><li><a name="123"></a>Siliconisation</li><li>Etc?</li></ul></li><li><B>Resurrection</B>: If mind-body substance dualism is false, and we are identical to human animals, then the only possibility for post-mortem existence is some form of bodily resurrection. Since the body is destroyed at death, it would seem that any resurrected individual could only be a copy of the original. It might think of itself as the resurrected pre-mortem individual, but it would be wrong. Consideration of arguments by <A HREF = "../../../Authors/V/Author_Van Inwagen (Peter).htm">Peter Van Inwagen</A> in this respect. This chapter is likely to be controversial, so needs to be very carefully argued, and factually correct concerning what is actually believed by intellectually Christians and Muslims (unlike what seems to be the case with most swipes against religion). Maybe I should also cover reincarnation. </li><li><B>Conclusion</B>: Brief summary of the above; <ul type="disc"><li>We are human animals, </li><li>Human persons fall under phase sortals of the concept HUMAN ANIMAL,</li><li>The person is inseparable from the animal, </li><li>The animal is utterly destroyed at death, </li><li>Substance dualism is false, and </li><li>Consequently (given the sort of thing we are) resurrection or any other post-mortem survival is impossible for us. </li></ul></li></ol></P><B>Note last updated:</B> 24/04/2018 00:12:58<BR><BR><HR> <P ALIGN="Left"><FONT Size = 2 FACE="Arial"><B><U>Footnote 27: (Thesis - Chapter 02 (What are We?))</B></U></P> <P ALIGN="Justify"><FONT Size = 2 FACE="Arial"> <u><b>Abstract</u></b><ol type="1"><li>The topic  personal identity has historically presupposed that we are (in the sense of  identical to , or  most fundamentally ) <u>persons</u>, whereas I (along with other animalists) claim that we are identical to human <u>animals</u>. </li><li> We requires explanation.

The  We is of some significance, as we will see in the course of this Thesis when we consider the social and reciprocal aspects of what it is to be a person. Nonetheless, should we not start with the singular, maybe even solipsist, question  <a name="123"></a>What Am I? , and expand out from there into the collective question? How we phrase our initial question has an impact on the course of our investigations, and may reflect our deepest presuppositions. The first-person question adopts the Cartesian stance of looking from the inside out, whereas the third-person question considers  us collectively. The first-person question may presuppose that the answer to the question is that I am primarily a psychological being, whereas the third-person question may assume or expect the answer that I am fundamentally physical. </li><li>Some of the potential answers to the question will be the same whether we phrase the question in the singular or the plural. </li><li>Taking it in the plural for now, we need to distinguish, as candidates for what we might be on the physical side, (prefixing  human- passim):- <ul type="disc"><li>Animals, </li><li>Organisms, </li><li>Bodies, </li><li>Beings, and </li><li>Brains. </li></ul></li><li>On the psychological side, I might be a self or, more popularly, a person. I might even be a non-essentially-embodied entity like a soul. </li><li>I will consider all these options in due course; with the exception of a detailed discussion of the concept PERSON (which is reserved for the next <a name="123"></a>Chapter), I will do so later in this chapter. </li><li><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_762_7">Olson</A></U><SUB>7</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_762_7"></A> also considers whether we might be Humean bundles of mental states and events, and even the nihilist view that we don t exist at all. I m not sure I ll have space for these, but need to remain aware of the possibilities and motivations for these positions. </li><li>However, for the moment I want to consider some themes connecting the possible answers to our question. Firstly, does there have to be a single answer? I know that I, and presume that my readers also, fall happily under the concepts HUMAN ANIMAL, HUMAN ORGANISM and HUMAN BEING. I at least <u>have</u> a human body and a human brain, though I would initially feel reluctant to say that I <u>am</u> one of either of these things. I would certainly claim to be a SELF, and also a PERSON, as no doubt would my reader. So, cannot all these answers be correct?</li><li>This raises the question of what I mean by saying what I <em>am</em> (or we <em>are</em>) something. In saying that I <em>am</em> any of these things, what sort of relation is the  am ? Am I using <em>am</em> in the sense of an identity relation, a constitution relation, ascribing a predicate, or have some other sense in mind? </li><li>There are two kinds of questions I want to ask. Firstly, what sort of being am I identical to? Secondly, what sort of properties do I have; both metaphysically essential properties (those without which I would cease to exist), and those I merely <em>consider</em> essential (that is,  very important , though I would continue to exist without them)? </li><li>Any  is that does duty for the identity relation inherits the formal properties of an equivalence relation; in particular, it is a transitive relation. Additionally, the  two identical entities either side of the copula must satisfy Leibniz s law;  they share (at a time) all their properties; actual and modal, intrinsic and relational. So, if I am identical to a human animal, and also identical to a human person, then that human animal must be identical to that human person. This would mean that these  two entities are really one. They co-exist at all times in all possible worlds where either of  them exists, and share all their properties and relations, at any time and world. Everything that happens to  one at a world and time happens to the  other at those coordinates. This places strong logical constraints on how much cake I can have and eat. I may want to say that I am identical both to a human animal, and to a human person, yet claim that a human person has certain mental properties essentially, but deny that a human animal does. However, I am then claiming what is logically impossible, at least for the classical logic of identity that denies that such notions as relative identity are coherent. As we will see, this point is essential to the animalist case that we are <I>not</I> identical to human persons (given the claim that we <I>are</I> identical to human animals). </li><li>My thesis addresses the topic of <I>personal</I> identity, but we might claim that what we re really interested in is in <I>our</I> identity. Not that we have doubts as individuals as to which particular individual we are (as though I, as Bill Clinton, don t know whether I am Bill Clinton or George W. Bush), but what <I>sort</I> of individual we are, together with worries about our persistence (how long we are going to last, and in what form). Historically, it has been a standard presupposition that <a name="123"></a>what we are most fundamentally is <I>persons</I>, or at least that s all we care about. So, concern about <I>our</I> identity has been elided with concern for <I>personal</I> identity, almost as though we thought that the two questions are the same. Animalists argue that the two questions are indeed different, but for convenience, and the historical continuity of the general topic under discussion, still say they are talking about <I>personal identity</I>. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b>Main Text</u></b><ol type="1"><li>To be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_762_9">Links to Books / Papers to be Addressed</A></U><SUB>9</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_762_9"></A></u></b><ol type="1"><li>For this Chapter I have already worked on the various papers or book chapters under supervisory control.

There are two responses to this; either to deny that it does, or to accept that the differences between human beings and other animals are those of degree rather than kind. </li><li>A second disadvantage is that accepting that we are human animals makes the prospects for post-mortem survival look bleak. This is addressed in <a name="123"></a>Chapter 11. </li><li>So, while saying that we are human animals might seem to be the default position  and so the burden is on others to demonstrate that we are not  the historical situation places a burden on the animalist to present the case for animalism with as much rigour as possible.</li><li>Further text to be supplied. </li></ol><BR><hr><BR><u><b>Main Text</u></b><ol type="1"><li>To be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1018_5">Links to Books / Papers to be Addressed</A></U><SUB>5</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1018_5"></A></u></b><ol type="1"><li>In this Chapter I will consider the following papers or book chapters (together with some others referenced by these).

It s also the area that s most fun. Indeed, I think that the entire Thesis will be an exercise in inference to the best explanation. It needs to account for our intuitions (if there is a universal response) or explain them away as confused. I will firstly briefly consider the propriety of using thought experiments in this domain of enquiry, and then consider the usual suspects, including the following:- <ol type="1"><li>Fission</li><li>Fusion</li><li>Replication</li><li><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1022_1">Commissurotomy</A></U><SUB>1</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1022_1"></A></li><li><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1022_2">Multiple Personality Disorder</A></U><SUB>2</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1022_2"></A></li><li>Brain-state Transfer</li><li><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1022_3">Brain Transplants</A></U><SUB>3</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1022_3"></A> </li><li>Teletransportation</li><li>Siliconisation</li><li>Transhumanism </li></ol> </li></ul><BR><hr><BR><u><b>Research Methodology</u></b><ul type="disc"><li>Follow <a name="123"></a>this Link for a generic statement of how I intend to pursue each Chapter. </li><li>The method is broken down into 12, possibly iterative, stages. </li><li>Follow <a name="123"></a>this Link for my progress dashboard on these tasks. </li></ul> <BR><hr><BR><u><b>Chapter Introduction</u></b><ol type="1"><li>To be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b>Main Text</u></b><ol type="1"><li>To be supplied. </li></ol><BR><HR><BR><u><b><U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_1022_6">Links to Books / Papers to be Addressed</A></U><SUB>6</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_1022_6"></A></u></b><ol type="1"><li>In this Chapter I will consider the following papers or book chapters (together with some others referenced by these).

In this regard, I m interested only in what they take resurrection to be, and whether they provide any detailed metaphysical account of how it is supposed to work. </li><li>As in the chapter on <a name="123"></a>Thought Experiments, this chapter is partly aimed at checking how (my version of) animalism copes with projected situations. As such, I may extend this to other posited versions of post-mortem survival, though most are ruled out by the essentially physical nature of the human person as proposed by animalism. </li><li>While not wanting to get too far off topic, especially at the end of the thesis, I want to consider some of the ethical consequences of adopting Animalism with  I presume  the lack of hope of post-mortem existence.

In 2017 these were relatively few and far between (though in general I ve ignored all the videos). Occasionally I ve read or viewed them, but not incurred the overhead of logging them in my database. </ol></li><li>As with all papers, I categorise them by subject, topic and sub-topic: up to three of each. As such, it is possible to cross-refer the subjects under discussion. But as I have about 22,000 papers of one sort or another, this cross-categorisation leads to something of a morass. </li><li>Consequently, I ve decided to list the main topics that I m interested in that have come up (this will be an on-going job, requiring occasional refinement), and to list the papers that fall under them. That way, it ll be easier to see how the various authors address the same topics, and in particular how they disagree.</li><li>The topics appear in the table above, with links to the lists. The topic of Personal Identity is further broken down in the list.</li><li>Unfortunately, there is some need for cross-categorisation, but I ll have to resist this and live with the deficiency. Multiple-listings will make the lists too long and confusing. Connections will need to be made between the papers themselves in such cases. </li><li>I have now logged by category all the papers I ve accessed since joining the list at the beginning of 2017  hence developing the categories. I now need to add  usually brief  comments, making use of a <a name="123"></a>disclaimer as necessary. </li><li>Stimulating though this exercise is  I ve found it s taking too much time away from my research, so I ve had to put it mostly on hold. What I decided to do in 4Q17 was just to categorise and read those items that really relate to my research. The others cannot for now be categorised or added to my database, but  as a weekly exercise  I added the authors, titles, dates and links in an uncategorised list.</li><li>For 2018, I ve decided that a further refocussing of effort will be required. From now on I ll only add those papers that are strictly associated with my research, or are particularly interesting. I hope to comment on those papers already logged. </li><li>I must also note here that I treat a few other articles I come across that are of similar standard to Aeon, and treat them as though they were Aeon, listing them in the cross-reference and filing them with the Aeon articles proper, for want of a better home. I note this against the individual papers. </li></ol><BR><BR><u><b>Papers</u></b><ol type="1"><a id="Aesthetics"></a><li><b>Aesthetics</b> <ul type="disc"><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22692.htm">Armstrong (John) - La bella vita</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22171.htm">Henderson (Gretchen E.) - The history of ugliness shows that there is no such thing</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22305.htm">Hulatt (Owen) - Has art ended again?</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22886.htm">Scruton (Roger) - The great swindle</A>", </li></ul><BR><hr><a id="Animals"></a></li><li><b><a name="123"></a>Animals / <a name="123"></a>Animal Rights</b> <ul type="disc"><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22330.htm">Barash (David P.) - Animal magnetism</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23109.htm">Delgado (Mikel Maria) - Tidy birds and neat bees: on conscientiousness in animals</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22803.htm">Birch (Jonathan) - Crabs and lobsters deserve protection from being cooked alive</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22799.htm">Cave (Stephen) - Who killed Knut?</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22613.htm">Charlton (Anna E.) & Francione (Gary) - A humanely killed animal is still killed  and that s wrong</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22442.htm">Edwards (Stassa) - From Aesop to doge</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23305.htm">Giracca (Amanda) - Consider the rooster</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22502.htm">Giubilini (Alberto) - Why vegetarians should be prepared to bend their own rules</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22354.htm">Hilborn (Anne) - Bad mothers and why they make a dierence to cheetah survival</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22100.htm">Jawer (Michael) - Do only humans have souls, or do animals possess them too?</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22466.htm">King (Barbara J.) - The pig on your plate</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23239.htm">Levy (Neil) - So you re too ethical to eat meat; but should cows go extinct?</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23240.htm">Lornie (Tim) - Sentient Animals, Relational Animals</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22266.htm">Martinho (Antone) - Pigs, parrots and people: the problem of animal personality</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22105.htm">Moore (Richard) - There is a moral argument for keeping great apes in zoos</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22572.htm">Rowlands (Mark) - The kindness of beasts</A>",</li></ul><BR><hr><a id="Astronomy"></a></li><li><b>Astronomy / Cosmology</b> <ul type="disc"><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22531.htm">Andersen (Ross) - In the beginning</A>",</li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_23/Abstract_23106.htm">Bruen (Matthew) - How the whalers of Moby-Dick could help put humans on Mars</A>",</li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22109.htm">Christie (Thony) - Galileo s reputation is more hyperbole than truth</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22225.htm">Christie (Thony) - How many great minds does it take to invent a telescope?</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22422.htm">Fry (Alexander B.) - In the dark</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22294.htm">Gillon (Michal) & Triaud (Amaury) - Dwarf planetary systems will transform the hunt for alien life</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22242.htm">Gilster (Paul) - Distant ruins</A>", </li><li>"<A HREF = "../../../Abstracts/Abstract_22/Abstract_22709.htm">Gott (J.
