Week 3 Reading

In week 3 Alex Douglas will lead a session on Montaigne. Alex has suggested that we read two of the Essais: 'That the taste of good and evil things depends in large part on the opinion we have of them' and 'On restraining your will'. Alex recommends the online translations here and here, and the French text here and here.  

I think the online translation may be based on the first edition of the Essais; in translations of his final edition (e.g. Frame, Screech) these two essays are 1.14 and 3.10.
