The web-site has a copy of the syllabus, extensive lecture supplements for each of the readings and lectures, and other information relevant to the course.  It will be updated throughout the semester.  Students are encouraged to provide me with suggestions and comments about the content, links and sources they have found helpful which I can post for other students, and I am grateful for help in correcting the inevitable typos and grammatical errors! 

Because of time constraints, thus semester I will only be able to cover the following sections from Part II of the Philosophical Investigations: v, ix and xi (and I will be focusing on the last of these).  You are not responsible for the remainder.
