Classroom participation, including attendance at and participation in writing seminars. Three 4-6 page papers, due Mon., Jan. 27, Wed., Feb. 26, and Wed., Mar. 19.
Cervantes, Adventures of Don Quixote, tr. J.M. Cohen (Penguin Classics). (Note: there is a more recent Penguin Classics edition with a different translator, but I prefer this one.)
Descartes, Selected Philosophical Writings, tr. J. Cottingham, R. Stoothoff and Dugald Murdoch (Cambridge).
Hume, Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion, ed. R.H. Popkin, 2d ed. (Hackett).
Leibniz, Philosophical Essays, ed. R. Ariew and D. Garber (Hackett).
All texts should be available at the University of Chicago Bookstore (a.k.a. Barnes and Noble). Readings not on the above list will be made available as photocopies.
(As was the case last quarter, you can use a different translation/edition at your own risk. We're reading Hume in the original, of course.)
