My Idea of an Outline

When I was sorting through some papers in my office a few weeks ago, I found the following notes from my dissertation. They concern a section from Chapter Two, added to the second draft, about compatibilist arguments from David Hume and Daniel Dennett that moral judgments properly concern a person’s character, whether under his control or not. In the dissertation, I needed to fairly quickly summarize these arguments, then offer compelling objections to them. This page of notes is my rough outline of how to do that.

I did not save these notes for their philosophic insights but rather for their amusement value. I’m amazed that the rather recent internet locution of FAIL! had wormed itself so far into my brain that I used it in an outline for my philosophy dissertation — of all things!
