Course Notes

These are notes I prepared for my students in a number of different courses I’ve taught over the years.

(The notes for the seminar classes on the history of political philosophy were provided to students after the classes. The notes for my lecture  / discussion classes on contemporary political philosophy and American Politics are more complete versions of the powerpoint slides that I used while lecturing.)
