Description

Hartshorne's notes for Whitehead's 1925-26 Philosophy 3b. This version of the notes has been re-ordered and newly numbered by WRP (upper-left corner) through comparison with other other notes from the same year, most notably Roethlisberger's (STU091). STU029, STU065, STU085, and STU086 are other versions of these notes.

The document is still a bit of a mess, including some completely illegible pages. Note the following:

-Pages 60 and 68 are difficult to place because there is so little content to compare to other sets of notes. Placement of page 68 is particularly suspect.

-The February 18 lecture begins on pages 61-62, is interrupted by lecture notes for February 23 on pages 63-64, and concludes at the top of page 65.

-Page 83 (the final page) is an "orphan page" which we could not match to any other set of notes. Since we have no notes from any student for May 11, 13, 20, or 22, it may be notes for one of these dates.

-Pages 75-82 are Hartshorne's own transcription of pages he considered to be difficult to read; these typescripts were sent along with the original notes to CPS. The list below describes the pages to which these transcription pages correspond.
75: 24-25
76: 26-28
77: 28
78: 29
79: 30
80: 33, 34, 36
81: 35
82: 67
