    The first 11 chapters are frustratingly simplistic The 12th lecture on the evolutionary foundations of ethics is not just simplistic but aggressively stupid


  2. Menglong Youk Menglong Youk says:

    Philosophy usually does not answer uestions Instead it provides many possible so called solutions and conseuences and let the individuals decide; it also brings up the thoughts of previous philosophers to make their points in each topic and these are what this course is aboutI usually have a habit of forgetting new concepts that I learn Unless I face them at least a few times my understanding would drop significantly after I finished learningThis course brings me to what I have come across before showing me once again the unfamiliar concepts of philosophy and the uestions of value which I am not good at It was an enjoyable experience throughout this course and I hope it could add a bit water to my limited pool of knowledge

    Useful clear interesting and enlightening this course is both thought provoking accessible and on a philosophical high level I am impressed and challengedThere is some critiue of some kinds of religion here but is fair and unprejudiced so even for me who keep my faith the perspectives on this are useful The course’s main perspective is asking fundamental uestions about how we live and answering them philosophically This is fascinating and teaches both important content and brilliant method drawing on a variety of sources Complicated uestions are presented clearly without losing depth or nuance In fact this is a rare course that may actually change the way you think about some aspects of life in an interesting way that might benefit both yourself and others

    Patrick Grim is one of my favorite philosophical lecturers and he doesn't disappoint in this series Once again Teaching Company courses are a great overview and refresher on topics and as I work on deeper and deeper views of values this was a great journey through the terrainThere are a few places I disagree with Grim; particularly on his ideas around determinism and relativism He claims that determined doesn't mean coerced and I don't accept his reasoning here On relativism I think he presented his counters to relativism strongly than I think they meritStill highly recommended and if I could spend a week in discussion with Grim I'd be very happy to have such an interlocutor


  5. Tom Tom says:

    First I must say that I will listen to this again The amount of material covered certainly warrants that additional timeI think that Prof Grim did an outstanding job with covering a vast field in the amount of time He gave multiple often contradictory views of most topics but the point was not to tell someone what to thing but to give topics to thing about and show some of the thought processes that can be applied to these uestions He said up front that he did not expect people to agree with what he said on all topics such agreement would be disappointing; well he was certainly right on that As to another's comment about pedantic use of literature well literature represents and uestions values In fact if one purpose of art is to assess ourselves and our societies then bringing this forward is important I believe that the references were far from snobbish but were examples of where to look for peoples thoughts on topics at different points in time

    Not very deep and a little pedanticI think philosophers should have a deep understanding of mathematics this guy didn't seem soPisses me off when people instead of passionate independent uest for the truth or at least an alternate reality sell off their literary historical philosophical training as a sex appeal Plato says this Kant says thatLike philosophy is just another one of hierarchical games we play in our social life I recently began going to work and it all seems to me as I'm playing World of Warcraft or something D


  7. Eric Eric says:

    Overall I am very satisfied with the course I feel that I was able to really deepen my curiosity and interest about uestions of value and I feel I gained a sophisticated understanding and appreciation of philosophy in general I also enjoyed the overview of many different important and influential figures and their contribution to philosophy I appreciated the exercise in better figuring out my own values As well I feel that now I have a much better understanding and appreciation of ethics


  8. Alexis Alexis says:
