Readings, almost all on the internet.
The course readings are separated into
topics, from which the class
will choose ten by a vote. The vote will be held on Tuesday, 5
May. I expect you to sample readings on all topics to decide
which topics we should consider this term.
The Course Web Pages also Include
Readings. Longer readings, mostly books, that treat course
material in more detail. I will continue to add to it as the
course goes on.
