Course Discussion

Welcome to Phil 487: Atheism, Religion and Power. This is, obviously, our course wiki, and we'll be using this to exchange reading responses, papers, etc. If you're unfamiliar with using wikis, not to worry: there are plenty of instructional resources on this site, and I'll be doing most of the setup work anyway.

The course sections will be posted below. Your reading responses should be posted in the relevant places. Hopefully, this will provide a valuable resource for review. PLEASE NOTE: Try to avoid copying and pasting text from any program into here. If you do, some formatting code from that program will be carried along with it, garbling your text. If you've written an assignment in Word (or some other program), you can email it to me and I will upload or re-format it.

Links to Readings

For the time being, I will post links to your readings here. Some will link directly to a download, some to a website; I will always indicate which.

Week 2:

1. Nietsche's Genealogy of Morality, a PDF download of the Clark and Swensen translation. This week, we'll be reading the preface plus treatise I and II. Please have at least the preface and Treatise I finished by Monday.

Week 3:

Treatise III from the Genealogy of Morality, plus "Morality as Anti Nature" and "The Four Great Errors" from (web link): Nietzsche's Twilight of the Idols.

More course content will also be posted as we proceed.
