How I spent my summer vacation I
In about nine weeks, I have a "comprehensive history exam" for my program: a two-day, six-hour test covering virtually the entire span of Western philosophy and over 2,500 pages of primary texts. That would be, roughly, two of those three piles. The plan is to read them over the next five weeks, meaning over a hundred pages of philosophy a day. And to blog reading summaries of each day's reading as part of my notetaking process.
Doesn't that sound like fun?
Okay, I'll try to include something vaguely philosophical for you to read, too.
