Online Readings


Plato: Crito
[PDF, 459 kb.]

This is the same version of the dialogue that appears in the Stewart anthology. So if you have a copy of the anthology, you don't need it.

Note that this is a non-captured PDF scan (i.e., you will not be able to select or copy text from it). It may look weird when you open it, but it is oriented for printing, not reading on screen. According to my tests, it should print out reasonably well.

Locke: Two Treatises of Government (Second Treatise excerpts)
[PDF, 1.53 Mb.]

Once again, this is a (quite large) non-captured PDF scan. It should print out reasonably well, but you will not be able to select or copy text from it.
