Week 10 Reading

For our final week this term we shall look at some extracts from Shaftesbury's philosophical notebooks. In the end I have decided on a slightly different selection from the one I originally proposed. We shall still look at the section 'the end', but now follow this with 'character and conduct' and 'philosophy'. There is a new critical edition of the text (see my review here) but for present purposes the older edition by Benjamin Rand should be fine, and is available online here (our sections are pp. 48-52, 189-91, 267-72).
