texts that we will be reading in the course are available for download
on the ‘Online Readings’ page
(use your U of S NSID and password to access).
That said, we will be reading a substantial number of texts that
happen to be collected in:
Christiano, ed. Philosophy and Democracy. Oxford University
So students who want to avoid the hassle and expense of printing
out selections from this text may wish to order a copy. The Christiano
text has NOT been pre-ordered through the U of S Bookstore, but
it is readily available through Chapters.ca, Amazon, etc.
Similarly, for the ‘classical positions’ readings, I
have, for the most part, deliberately selected versions found in
a widely-used anthology that some students probably already own:
Steven M. Cahn, ed. Classics of Political and Moral Philosophy.
Oxford University Press, 2002.
Some of you will have already purchased this text for POLS 236 and/or
POLS 237 and/or PHIL 262. In any case, should you choose to do so,
you should be able to find a used copy for just a few dollars.
Cunningham, Theories of Democracy: A Critical Introduction.
The Cunningham book has NOT been ordered through the Bookstore,
but it is readily (and fairly cheaply) available through Chapters.ca
