I'm Not the Guy
Following up on yesterday's musing about why my dissertation isn't writing itself, let me pass this along. Just now in the hall, the department grad chair asked me if I'd be willing to say a few words about how to write a dissertation at the year's first dissertation seminar. Now, this guy is just about the nicest person in philosophy, so what was I going to say? But I'm really not sure what he was thinking. "PGS's been writing his dissertation for so long, he must be good at it by now."
