Week 2 of course A222 and time to look at Locke in a bit more depth, including looking at actual text rather than just people’s interpretations (though obviously looking at those too). Some of the original text is a bit hard to follow (Locke would have received notes to be more concise), but it helps that the textbook directs you to read it all, then one chunk, then each paragraph in that one chunk. The repetition helps to get the ideas fully percolated through the old grey matter. We also started looking at arguments against Locke’s ideas, which will all come into play in the first assignment.
I did look into finding a substitute tutorial for the one I am having to miss, but according to the tutorial finder that is the only tutorial within 20 miles.
