“Philosophy and Utopia in Early Modern Europe” Presentation: Quentin Skinner, Thomas More’s Utopia pp. 225-244

 

Presentation: 

Topic: Quentin Skinner, “Thomas More’s Utopia and the virtue of true nobility” in Skinner, Visions of Politics, 3 vols (Cambridge: CUP, 2002) vol. 2, 

  • pp.  225-244
  • I will provide all sources.

Disclaimer: The grammar I , the presenter, use is not strong. I’m hoping you can create a presentation with concrete ideas from the sources on screen, then a second document detailed, for me to use as the knowledge, directing the class along the presentation, slide by slide, with my words to support. To be clear, it cannot be wordy complicated grammar, it should flow nicely and the words shouldn’t be crazy complicated. Don’t be misled tho, the ideas should be critical and concrete.

Start with Name of book and background on book/author 

  • First sentence may start with “Author splits the reading into couple of sections”

“I am talking about pages from a book” 

I have been asked to analyze this 

It would be good to look at these issues that he raises 

  • Just a couple of more sentences for summary 
  • Majority of the Presentation

What are the important points from having read the article 

  • Where are they ? 
  • Are the arguments valuable? Do they look like a good argument? 
  • You are the judge on the article 
  • Focus on 3-5 points and comment on them, evaluate them 

Primary Source and presentation: Is the more utopia book 

Another primary source for minimal reference: 

Lucian, “A True History” in Selected Dialogues, trans. C.D.N. Costa (Oxford: OUP, Pages 203-233

  • The focus is one Quentin Skinner, “Thomas More’s Utopia and the virtue of true nobility” this other primary source should be minimal in the project, maybe as an example to compare a specific theme, the spotlight is on thomas more’s utopia

DON’T MAKE IT SHORTER THAN 12 MINS OR LONGER THAN 15 

  • Do not repeat and try to keep the slides clean but the document full of info for the verbal side of the presentation,
