My comments on the ISA-2012 panel on Alkerian IR. Recorded direct to iPad, so the quality is not as good as it is when I remember to bring my dedicated digital recorder with me.
The diagrams we drew on the board in class this week — and, full disclosure, that’s not the first time I have used such diagrams — seemed to need a supplemental lecture of their own, as we gather our thoughts before diving into Hegel for the week after the break. Accordingly, here’s a supplemental lecture on the differences in modes of authority between Hobbes, Locke, Rousseau, and Kant. Plus some thoughts on universal Reason.
The fourth lecture for SIS-301 Spring 2012 — this one’s on Locke.
There’s good news and there’s other news. The good news is that I fixed the recording problems from last week, so this file actually plays with intelligible sound. The other news is that I had to completely change my recording set-up, so this file is a .mov rather than a .m4a. It should play in a larger number of players, but the video is a tad lower quality and the file size is much larger. And it’s not chaptered, the way the .m4a files were. That said, it actually works, so overall I think it’s a net gain.
The third lecture of the semester — Hobbes and the Enlightenment project.
UPDATE — there was some kind of a recording error on this version of the lecture, so it’s inaudible for about the first 25 minutes. Sigh. I don’t have the time to re-do it just at the moment so might I suggest that you listen to the older version here, and then maybe catch the last 10-15 minutes of this one which are properly audible.
