Some faculty have strongly suggested that you read their books.
I have changed those recommendations to be required. I have done
so because the seminar is not a course in which a faculty member
will offer you a set body of information in a lecture format.
The intent of this seminar is to engage you in the dialogue about
issues to which these people have given great time and thought.
Thus, you should be familiar with the material they have already
published on the issues to be discussed. Where a faculty person
has suggested a number of readings, try to read at least two of
required (S)= Highly suggested
