As of 1:30pm, Tuesday December 15th, I have gained a doctorate in something approximating formal philosophy of language. As implicated by the level of precision, at time of writing this is rather recent and still somewhat hard for me to grasp. You can download a copy of my dissertation, and in fact I still have some paper copies left (they smell much nicer than the electronic version does).

I and my colleague Dr Michael Franke (who graduated the same day) are celebrating Friday December 18th, with a party in Cafe 't Geveltje, Bloemgracht 170, Amsterdam. From 20.00 until the small hours the place is ours, and we would be delighted if you would join us there.
