There is a general dilemma in running a class: either you can put the proper emphasis on important points or you can have an open discussion. Neither is dispensable, but the two goals are in conflict with one another: a free discussion will occasionally involve working through blind alleys and relatively minor points. This is my attempt to square the circle.
These notes attempt to do two things. First, they summarize the main points of each day's class. Thus we can spend a lot of time working through a minor point and everyone will still have a record of what I consider to be the main objective. Second, the notes will often extend the discussion. They frequently contain answers to questions or arguments that have come up after class ends.
It goes without saying that the notes will be addressed to those who have attended the class meetings.
