Well, this update is way overdue, I know...  Things have just been that crazy for us for the past six+ months, and, anymore, most reading this are probably in the know about the last HUGE move for the Steggies.  As such, as time got away from me, I was just going to let it go.  But, at the moment I do have occasion to bring things back up to speed.  I will do so by putting the mortar between these two posts...
 
These words ended up being quite prophetic, coming true MUCH sooner than expected (although I still have a dissertation to write to complete the Ph.D.)...

After three "official" (and many unofficial) drafts of my dissertation prospectus, my prospectus defense is, alas, underway, has been since last Friday.  It was a given that they were going to let me do it remotely.  They decided on an e-mail administration of the defense.  Bottom line, I should know within the next couple weeks if I am good to go to start writing the dissertation, which I am hoping will take at most one more year. If anyone would happen to be interested in seeing the prospectus, let me know.  I would be willing to share it here.

I just wanted to bring those of you interested up to speed or, should I say, up to "slow". Mind yous, so far, so good!  Three committee members' very lengthy criticisms, questions and suggestions successfully responded to, but that was a month and a half ago.  I am being held up by ONE M.I.A. professor.  That seems to be coming to a head, though, finally.  I just received an e-mail from my adviser who told me that the M.I.A. professor has, alas, been back in touch and will submit his comments tomorrow.  I am happy to hear that, but I am not holding my breath. Bottom line, I just want to be let off the leash and get to making this end run!

Alas, comments from fourth committee member are finally in!  I just glossed them over for now because, once I engage, I enter the Matrix and will not really be out until I craft my response (which will take hours if not days).  True to my understanding of this professor and his penchants for the unusual, his take, at a most general level, seems to be that I have an uphill battle ahead of me, even beyond the dissertation, because I am taking a position that is not going to be popular, BUT he likes it because that is the kind of thing that is right up his alley!  It seems that he even defends my position on Kant, over which I have been beaten up by the other three committee members as well as my adviser.  Woo-hoo!  We are getting back to moving forward!

Well, I am awaiting final word.  My last (hopefully in both senses) reply took me a week to craft and went out on Sunday.  I have proposed a revision to my thesis statement... that I think my colleague here Travistotle will like.
 
With the changes italicized, it now reads...
"Although Karol Wojtyla makes great strides in expanding the notion of subjectivity beyond consciousness and then establishing the person as subject as the foundation for ethical personalism, his analysis could be significantly enhanced through engagement with the classical Confucian interpersonal ethical sensibility."
 
It had read...

'Tis been AWHILE... Dissertation... 63 pages in, that is, almost halfway (just shooting for 150)... Chapter 1, minus the chapter summaries, done... Chapter 2 two-thirds done... First submission into my committee as of tonight! Woo-hoo!!! Revised thesis statement, by the way: "Although Karol Wojtyla makes great strides in expanding the notion of subjectivity beyond consciousness and then establishing the person as subject as the foundation for ethical personalism, his analysis could be significantly enhanced through engagement with the classical Confucian interpersonal ethical sensibility."  The working title is: Karol Wojtyla's Interpersonalist Ethics: A Critical Appraisal and Confucian Reconstruction. Fingers crossed that they love it!!!

Got my first set of comments back from my dissertation adviser last week.  They were on Chapter 1.  They were critical.  This is good.  Moreover, my thoughts as I read through them were, "I can field each and every one." I wrote him back this weekend with five points I wanted to run by him before making any revisions.  He e-mailed me right back.  He confirmed my thinking.  He wrote that all of the critiques he made he thought I would readily handle.  Then, with respect to Chapter 2, which he said I was going to be receiving his comments on shortly and, moreover, in which I took liberties that went a bit against what had been agreed upon at the conclusion of my dissertation prospectus defense and so I was somewhat nervous about even though I had given them a heads up, he said that how I had gone about it, using existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre (whom I was supposed to cut out) as a segue, was, and I quote, "very effective"!!! So, bottom line, we are looking good.  On page 73, almost halfway there!!!

Great news Steg! Glad to hear that the first round of feedback was favorable. I am sure you are not only happy, but relieved!
 
I am guessing Sartre would say you did the right thing by including him in your paper because you alone are responsible for your great results/actions, and there are no excuses

Just submitted Chapters 1 through 3 in full!!!  Just one more 50-or-so-page chapter to go if all goes as planned.  That is, I am on page 124 and thinking I can have this done within about 175 pages. Feel free to send good vibes my way at will!!! Any sources of energy are welcomed and will be gladly accepted as I, alas, finally start to round third base on this thing. For those of you who have stuck it out with me here on "the Gridiron", you know how looooong and challenging of a journey this has been. I remember, almost a dozen years ago now as I was setting out on this endeavor, about to commence my graduate studies at Catholic U., being reduced to tears as I sat out in front of an absolutely filthy, total craphole, literal rat's nest basement apartment on my first day in D.C., only to be helped up and out by a friend I made on-line via fantasy football and the GBRFL (and now you know why I have not given up on this endeavor).
