Be to read Bentham and Foucault for class tomorrow. First and foremost, make sure that you can visualize Bentham’s idea. Read the descriptions carefully and draw yourself a diagram if necessary. Once you understand Bentham’s idea, you will find the Foucault easier to follow. For the questions, please ignore the Foucault reading, question 1.
Come to class with potential topics in mind. I’ll give you some time to propose your idea to a peer, so be ready to discuss your ideas.
For those looking to get a jump on Thursday’s reading, start with Hobbe’s Leviathan. We’re beginning our shift to political philosophy and the ordering of states, so prepare yourself to discuss government and governing philosophies. You’ll also need to come to class with a page worth of dialogue for peer-editing.
