Final Exam Study Questions

As you know, final exam study questions were handed out in class on December 2. NOTE: There was a typo in this version, under point a) the sentence "You may not choose more than one question from each subject area category (A-E)" should read "You may not choose more than one question from each subject area category (A-F)". Area F has no special status.

Final Exam

The final exam for POLST 337.3 will be written in Arts 607, Wednesday, December 10, 2:00 - 5:00 PM.

Books

Some students have borrowed books from me, either in aid of the term paper assignment or on background. Much as I would love to let you keep them, I can't afford to do so. So, please return any books of mine that you may have sometime before the end of term.

Texts:

Canadian Political Philosophy, ed. Ronald Beiner and Wayne Norman, (Oxford University Press, 2001).

Charles Taylor, "The Politics of Recognition" in Multiculturalism, ed. Amy Gutmann (Princeton University Press, 1994). Some of you may already own this collection. If you don't, I encourage you to buy it -- it is a classical text in the field. Note, however, that this is not a required text.

Copies of Macpherson's book, Taylor's essay, and possibly some additional readings are available at the Main Library Reserve Desk. Materials used in class (e.g., overheads) will be made available here on the course web site.

Students who are looking for some additional background on the issues that we will be discussing in the course are encouraged to have a look at: Will Kymlicka, Contemporary Political Philosophy: An Introduction, 2nd. Edition. (Oxford University Press, 2001). Note, however, that this is not a required text.
