Thanks Dado - and thank you for being there to correct my occasional failure to speak in a socially acceptable register!
Yes, they give you one as soon as you finish the thesis defence - standard issue.
Yep, great to get that endorsement of your work
Sorry for not getting back to this thread for a few days.
Thanks to everyone who posted here - I really appreciate the well-wishing
Congratulations! What aspect of philosophy did you write on?
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.
Huge congrats Doctor.
LOL - bet you wish you hadn’t asked...
Congrats Doc! Now you can post in a @Bodean thread and feel safe!
The lounge welcomes thee
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.
