Whats in a chapter anyway?

January 03, 2004

A month ago, I was telling hiring comittees that I had all chapters of my dissertation drafted and that I needed to do some revising.

As of this morning, chapter four has calved into chapters four and five. I am cutting out a mess of the stuff that did not fit into chapter four and putting it aside. I will put together a new final chapter with a much simpler, somewhat Hegelian, structure. Then I will go over the outtakes and either write them up or cut them entirely. It should work, but it will take a bit of writing.

I feel like I am going backwards sometimes.
