This text is an anthology of chapters and excerpts written by some very good thinkers. I have been worried for years about the price of texts and the burden this places on students. I went out of my way to source more inexpensive texts and by and large was successful. But the perfect text eluded me; a text that would serve just what I was going to talk about and the attendant readings that student needed to read. There was always material left over in existing texts.
So, I decided to try this out. This is an experiment. We shall see.
