Hello again everyone. I’m back once more. It’s been a pretty turbulent year, but I have to apologise to my readers for dropping off the face of the earth for a few months. I owe deeper apologies to others who I’ve left hanging. If you know me and haven’t heard from me in a while, please do feel free to get in touch.
I have now submitted my thesis, albeit in a form I’m less than happy with. No doubt the viva will force me to revise some bits of it, and I will most likely revise even more of it when I’ve had a bit of break, but, for now, you can grab the full thing here.
The good thing about having finished (or at least submitted) is that I can now work on other projects without guilt. This means that I’m finally writing a couple of papers I’ve been intending to write for a long time. I’ve also just finished a joint paper (with my good friend Tim Franklin) for Jon Cogburn and Mark Silcox’s Dungeons and Dragons and Philosophy anthology with Open Court, trying to apply Kant’s aesthetics to the RPG experience. I don’t know whether this will ultimately mean more or less activity on the blog. I’m still trying to get the whole hang of paper writing, as it’s a different beast from blogging or thesis writing. We’ll see how it goes.
Catch you all next time I have a suitably coherent series of thoughts.
