M. Cahn, ed. Classics of Political and Moral Philosophy,
(Oxford University Press, 2002).
This has textbook has been chosen because it the collection most
often used for POLS 236 and POLS 237 during the regular session.
This matters, of course, in as much as students who have already
taken POLS 236 likely will already own it and students who go on
to take POLS 236 later will be spared the expense of buying another
readings that we will be looking at have been much anthologized
elsewhere, however. So students who are unable or unwilling to fork
out for the Cahn anthology will likely be able to obtain the readings
elsewhere. Be advised, however, that that may involve a fair bit
of work and that the editions/translations that you find may not
match up with the texts discussed in class. Follow this alternative
at your own risk.
the convenience of students who intend to take this cheaper (but
much more time-consuming) route, I have included the original source
for each reading in the reading
schedule [PDF, 12 kb.].
