Dissertation update...  On PAGE 161...  In "overtime" as far as I am concerned!  Still see it being done by page 175-ish.  Made my presumably final, partial submission earlier this week.  Still do not know if I will make it this semester, but I am giving it the proverbial "old college try", quite literally, I suppose.

As of 1:48 a.m. local time, the writing of the Stegsertation is... DONE!!!
 
For all intents and purposes, at least! On page 182... Have a 1-to-2-page conclusion to write. Will likely end up being 183 pages. Plan to write that, proofread and submit tomorrow/today/Thursday! Will check back in at that time...

As to this, I have hit a possible,... nay,... likely snag. Since time is of the essence and logistics need to be worked out fast if I am to graduate this spring, I put in a call to the Philosophy Department. The secretary asked me if I turned in the "graduation application". I said, "What?" Dum-dum here, I did not even know there was such a thing, no less that it was due on February 12th. For reals though, I am TOTALLY out of the loop on this kind of stuff. So, anyway, I immediately put an e-mail in to the Graduate School. I have not yet heard back (which I hope means it is working up the chain). Point being, defense dates and such will be scheduled relative to that. If I am allowed to graduate here in the spring, the dissertation is due on April 15th, so shit has got to move super fast. If not, I suppose it will be the summer. But, I do want to walk, and that would have to be in December because SIU does not have a summer commencement ceremony. We shall see... I really want to do this now, so please put in some prayers that my request for late submission of the "graduation application" is met by a reasonable, understanding soul. ...

Well, 187 pages...  Could not help myself this morning as the girls were sleeping in...  It has become an addiction that I now see is hard to kick.  BUT, really, outside of proofreading, revising and defending, THAT IS IT!!!

Been largely out of pocket here for a while... RIDICULOUSLY busy! Final revisions took some time, but it is now REALLY over! Ended up 198 pages (213 including Abstract, Acknowledgments and Preface). Anyway, NO MORE tinkering allowed! Just moments ago submitted the completed dissertation to the committee!!! Defense scheduled for June 22nd at 2:00 p.m. ...

I assume by the name change that your doctorate defense went well? Doctorate in hand?

'Tis my first post as Stegfucius!  Indeed, been waiting some time to use that message icon on this thread for this occasion!
 
Thanks for asking, DD.  My reason for not posting earlier: am still caught up in this...
 
on Jun 1st, 2016, 3:41pm, StegRock wrote:
Crazy times yet again in the world of Steg, so things with the league have to remain on hold until July, and we are definitely looking at a late draft this year.  Stegs will not come up for air until July 3rd, but even then not really.  That said, amidst it all I would not mind hooking up with some of you east coasters.  Here are our upcoming dates...
 
We are in the throws of moving to a new place (YET AGAIN).  With some overlap in leases,.. we are currently in the process of packing; movers coming on June 3rd; will be out of this place and on a plane heading to New Jersey on June 7th, arriving on June 8th.  Reason for this current move: we are moving Mama Steg out with us.  That said, on June 20th, will hop in the car and head to Illinois to ... get that dissertation defended on June 22nd.  Then, back to mom, and, after getting some movers and chuckers involved, we ALL head back to Hawaii on July 2nd.  Steg, of course, then has to be back in the classroom on July 5th to teach Deductive Logic for the first time, which means that I should devote a good amount of time to reacquainting myself to formal logic and preparing the class... on the planes, I guess.
 
So, here we go...  Gonna be crazy, not much time to ditz around, but if you want to get together, let me know a.s.a.p., and let's see what we can do.  If you want to drop by the old Steg residence one last time, this is the last opportunity, preferably before June 20th, that is, before things are in total upheaval, and visitors are not really going to be welcome.
 
Over and Out...

 
Mama Steg is now here in Hawaii.  She is making out,... well,... okay.  The events of the past couple months have been a strain on us all, but things are slowly working themselves out.  We are still living in partial heaps and piles, and mom remains somewhat raw.
 
BUT, at any rate, yes, on the evening of June 22nd I changed my handle here from StegRock to Stegfucius to commemorate the fact that at 4:10-ish that afternoon after about a two-hour-and-ten-minute dissertation defense I became Dr. Stegeman!  It went outstandingly.  All five members voted "Pass as is" (as opposed to "Pass requiring revisions" or "Fail") in what was totally unflippantly told to me was the fastest deliberation in recent memory, less than two minutes.

Doctor Stegeman-
 
Your name was mentioned tonight at the dinner table as my freshman son was telling us about his day. He had to write a paper comparing and contrasting Confucianism and Daoism. After a brief discussion as to why the ruling class preferred Confucianism - I mentioned what you wrote your doctorate on.
 
(I will let you know if he writes on the pope anytime soon )
 
Meanwhile, I just realized how much I am glad I am not in school anymore.

I am honored to have come up in the Warner household over dinner... even though coming up during dinner is not always a good thing!
 
As for Confucianism versus Daoism, actually, at least at the point of their original official cultural appropriation, that is to say, when the study/memorization of the core texts became mandated during the Han Dynasty, there was a preference for Daoism (perhaps, in part, as a backlash against the Legalism of the Qin Dynasty that had won the day of the Warring States Period).  That said, philosophically, what you state is right given the small-government, low-taxes, anti-regulation, anti-war libertarianism of philosophical Daoism.  Of course, the Confucians were also for low taxes, minimal regulations and by implication smaller government, too.  However, Confucians are for institutionalization.  Daoists most assuredly are NOT.
 
Much of the difference between the two camps can be understood via their philosophies of language.  They both see the inadequacy of words to capture reality and solve problems (which is the fundamental problem with legalism and, indeed, the law -- the concrete manifestation of which we call loopholes).  The Confucians advise the "rectification of names (zheng ming)", that is, fix and standardize the use of words (top-down) and on a personal level choose your words carefully and in accordance with standard meanings.  Metaphor muddies the waters of meaning and is, therefore, dangerous.  The Daoists proffer the "doctrine of no words (wu ming)", that is, speak as little as possible, use words only for communication and never for phenomenologically affirmative philosophical understanding.  Metaphor transcends the limitations of words and, therefore, is valuable.
 
Feel free to share with your son, Steve!

Late notice on this one...  Steg, wife and child are in southern Illinois...  It is belated by almost a year, but I am walking in graduation and getting "doctorally" hooded on the morrow (indeed, later this morning) at SIU's commencement.  What a journey it has been...
