The Exegesis

The Exegesis

As explained elsewhere, my PhD thesis consisted of two volumes – the book Thinking About Suicide and its companion volume, the Exegesis, which contains the formal, academic arguments of the thesis.

The Exegesis weaves together four of the papers written during my research, each of which is its own paper that can be read by itself. These papers are shown below with their titles in capitals, and a pdf icon  for downloading. This icon also appears at the beginning for downloading the Exegesis in its entirety – though an online (html) version is not included here as it is just too big to read on the screen.

Please note that the pdf files of the papers do not include any bibliography – the Exegesis has just one Bibliography, which includes all the references found in the papers.

Note also that the number of pages shown here are for printed A4 pages (not screen pages).
