Subject: Suggestions for Readings on the Notion of Time
This spring for the first time I will be teaching a "capstone" course
that links "Humanism, Science and Technology." The theme I have
selected is "the notion of time."
Among the readings I'm thinking of including are Stephen Hawking's A
Brief History of Time and Shakespeare's Richard II because of Richard's
line about his having wasted time which now wastes him, but time is a
theme in almost all of Shakespeare's writing, so I'm not convinced that
that would be the best Shakespeare play to include if there's room for
I'd welcome suggestions on any readings, non-Shakespearean and
Shakespearean (which sonnets, for instance).
