This seminar is designed to explore a wide range of challenging intellectual materials, extending from the classical works of Kant and Marx to current controversies, and from philosophical autobiography and drama to social science and law. We will read a different book each week, write about it, and discuss it thoroughly. Many short papers will be written by each student; these papers will serve as the focal points of our seminar meetings. The reading and writing demands on each student will be very substantial. A two-fold purpose will guide our study of each work: first, to clarify and grasp the theoretical issues it presents, and second, to search for the pleasure, intellectual and aesthetic, it may provide.
