Dissertation Bibliography

I have to hand in my dissertation on Thursday morning so I can’t do any thinking about anything else till then. I’ve been at the library for eight plus hours and my brain is mush. People keep asking me what I’m writing about for my paper. I can’t even be bothered to explain it cause I’m too deep in it. The title at this point is: Art and the Production of Self: Neuroscience, Touch and the Simulation of Feelings. If you want to get a sense of it here’s my bibliography. Don’t be impressed, most of these you only read a chapter or two but yeah,  I’ve been reading a whole bunch of neuroscience and phenomenology. Gah, I'm brain dead.

All right. Going to scoot out of here and drink a pint or two to unwind and prepare for round two tomorrow.
