Ebook Synopsis

This is a collection of an even dozen of my postings to web forums. They all relate in some way to being a PhD student. The postings range from the philosophical to humour to advice.

There have been some great and important changes to me over the time of my candidature. I have learnt a great deal about the meaning of research, both as an activity within itself and in its effect on the person doing it. I now believe that it is not possible to do research without being changed by it. That does not only mean that the knowledge gained by doing the research will change the person acquiring it but also that the person will be changed in their outlook by being involved in doing the research. Thus research is a process that changes the individual doing it because it changes the researcher’s conceptions of themself and their world.
