What Will I Read?

As we enter the modern world, the variety of available texts increases, and as a result booklists for HUM 4 can be quite different from one another. Here are a few commonly taught core texts: 

  • John Locke, Second Treatise on Government
  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on the Origin of Inequality
  • Voltaire, Candide
  • Mary Shelley, Frankenstein
  • Frederick Douglass, “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?”
