10/10: Julien Offray de La Mettrie, “Man a Machine”

For the reading on Tuesday we want the class to read Julien Offray de La Mettrie’s Man – Machine pages 1-4 (ending with the section “some emprical facts”) and then pages 23-32 (starting with “The springs of the human machine” and ending on “reconciling ourselves to our ignorance”).  Here is a link to the PDF we’ve been using: http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/pdf/mettmanm.pdf
