Revising the schedule

Due to the textbook supply problem, I am going to have to revise the schedule and syllabus a bit more extensively than I expected. For today, Wednesday the 27th, we will be looking at Renaissance Art and I will talk a bit about the ideals of the Renaissance, especially about the work of Niccolo Machiavelli. The most famous chapter is probably Chapter XVII: Concerning Cruelty and Clemency.

For Friday, you should read more of The Prince at the above link and bring two or three of your favorite passages — written down — to share and discuss.
