Yes, I promised a sample outline–but then I thought, shoot, what if the sample simply misleads you? That is, there are a number of good ways to put together an outline for the readings, and I’m concerned that those of you who’ve already completed your outlines might look at what I’ve put up and think you’ve done it wrong—when in fact, you did a fine job, just in a different way.
(Remember when I said that I was an Aristotelian, not a Platonist? One of the consequences of such an approach is that I believe there is more than one way to write a good outline.)
SO: for those of you who are uncertain or concerned about how to do this, send me an e-mail (to the address listed at the top of the syllabus, or you can simply click the CONTACT ME tab on the top of this page for the address) with any questions you have, and we’ll get it all sorted.
