[Xmca-l] Doctoral Theses and autobiography



Recently I read an interesting paper. By one Rumen Petrov, it is an autobiographical essay on doing his PhD. It was fascinating. In the course of this he says "many Doctoral theses are various forms of working through." Petrov is a Bulgarian Freudian with an interest in Vygotsky, so "working over" means catharsis, or perezhivanie.
I thought this was a nice observation.
Are all you PhD students going through this?
