Sixty pages (one and an half-spaced)

I’ve just collated my TeX files that make up the bulk of the Definitions chapter and I have sixty pages. That doesn’t include the introduction section to the piece nor does it include my attempt at a definition; this is just the discussion on previous definitional attempts. In a few days I’ll finish up my own attempt at a definition and try to write it up not just as a section of the thesis but also as a potential paper.

This is big news. I’ve been hoping to break this camel’s hump for a few weeks now and it’s finally cracking.

Inappropriate analogies over; I’m going to bed.

About Matthew Dentith

Author of "The Philosophy of Conspiracy Theories" (Palgrave Macmillan), Matthew Dentith wrote his PhD on epistemic issues surrounding belief in conspiracy theories. He is a frequent media commentator on the weird and the wonderful, both locally and internationally. On occasion he can be caught dreaming about wax lions but, mostly, it is rumoured he works for elements of the New World Order.


  1. Camel humping eh? So, it’s finally come to that? Verily, the scholarly life is a torturous trail to follow, one that breaks many a fine man and sends him to commit acts of bestial deprivation.

    What’s next, I wonder? Kitten-huffing? Dwarf tossing? (not what you think!) Casting aside all decency and joining the Church of England?

  2. It’s no secret I’ve always wanted to be known as ‘Degenerate Karma’!

    No, just never liked my name, and haven’t used it since I arrived in Japan, which is four years ago now.

    Anyway, you can talk, Jennifer Zander Xerxes Hieroglyph Xylophone Dentith. (oops, did I just blow your anonymity?)
