I am waiting to obtain some consensus from my IASA peers with regard to the course outline. Until then, I will talk obliquely about the content as it seems to be shaping up. For now, let me give you a list of some of the references I will include these below. I will also include references to some of the other classics, like Aristotle, Plato, Kant, and Hume, but here are some interesting readings from modern times.
