  1. No the worst is discovering at the end of your PhD that someone else has done exactly the same thing and published it- and you have to junk it all :)

    Seriously I faced that because my PhD is tangential to most research in my area of history- so it runs alongside things rather than actually through the historiography- I found I could twist other works around to create a historiography and thus a context for me to argue against. You’ll be fine- what’s your PhD actually on? I know you’ve mentioned Strauss but what aspect?
