First draft of the first chapter of my dissertation is now complete – one day before my deadline! The first six weeks have been taxing, mostly because my job has been laying great demands on my time. Nevertheless, I’m happy with my progress so far. The next chapter is undoubtedly going to be a lot more difficult – Habermas is not easy to read sometimes, and I need to make sure I do a great job at elucidating and analysing the one aspect of his thought. Still, he’s one of my favourite philosophers so I’m looking forward to the next six weeks. Wish me luck!
