The book we are tackling this time is From the Ruins of Empire: The Revolt against the West and the Remaking of Asia (2012) by Indian author Pankaj Mishra. A new paperback version of the book lists for $20, but can be found for less. An ebook is $13. This meeting will cover the first three chapters.
For this meeting we will spend our time discussing Three Dialogues Between Hylas and Philonous by George Berkeley. First published in 1713, it has become a part of the traditional epistemological oeuvre.
Presenter: Erica Nutzman will give a brief overview of the history of the library as well as describe the unique resource collections available for research at the Minnesota State Law Library. In particular, there are a number of different resources about court personnel, particularly oral history resources and other materials about specific judges. There are many historical sources as well, such as legal briefs, lawyer roll books, books on court history, and other unique resources.
