    Yes, they give you one as soon as you finish the thesis defence - standard issue.

    High level explanation: 20th Century European or 'Continental' Philosophy
    Mid level: Derrida, Husserl, and the Frankfurt School
    Low level: Trying to show that the Frankfurt School tradition of Critical Theory could find unexpected but valuable insights by reading Derrida and Husserl on the relation between ideal objects and historical factuality!

    Phew! I'll just go and lie down now...But seriously, well done and it must be great for you to have been rewarded for what must have been, at least at times, an arduous journey.

    I might as well be from another planet
    I've been doing that (Beavis Brain) most of my life. I first read about Relativity when I was about 10, and I think
    it made more sense then than now. I got into metaphysics and stuff a few years later and eventually
    figured out that I know nothing. Last few years I've been struggling with a few books/authors that
    make attempts at integrating physics, metaphyisics, brain...um, stuff, and other stuff, and it's pretty
    much hopeless . Philosophy ?.. when I was a teenager and knew everything... I was much more
    like Beavis than like Buddha. I think that realizing something of the magnitude of how little I know
    is one of the biggest things I've learned.
