      This is by far one of the best lectures I ve ever heard I m not a philosopher I avoided thinking most of my life I made a mistake about a year ago and read Heidegger s Being and Time That completely hooked me Now, I just have to understand our universe and our place in it.What is the order within the universe, what is our purpose and why are we here the three big questions These or some variation of these are the three questions that drive me and makes me want to stay alive As for my reason for [...]

    2. Caroline on said:

      This is an extremely dense but excellent series of 36 lectures on metaphysics and epistomology from Descartes to very recent philosophers such as Rorty and Putnam Cohoone is extraordinarily articulate and coherent Of course he s selecting and to some extent simplifying to fit the time limitations, but the language is precise and he uses the terms that these philosophers themselves use This is not dumbed down, but selective I repeatedly rewound, sometimes three or four times, to try to understand [...]

      Another great course from The Teaching Company There is so much to learn Rather than closing doors, this course opens them AKA there are books I have to buy.The thirty third albeit audio book I have finished this year I will have to listen to this one several times to fully absorb it fortunately I spend a great deal of time on the elliptical.

    4. LindaH on said:

      This is an excellent series of lectures on the development of philosophical thinking from the beginning of modern thought in the 17th century through the multiple lines of inquiry in the 20th century Professor Lawrence Cohoone is extremely well organized and articulate in his discussions he never dumbs down the material but focuses on clarification of terms, arguments, and simple, provocative applications From time to time he uses his lectern to illustrate the kinds of questions each philosopher [...]

    5. Geoff Smith on said:

      Okay so I ll comes straight out and admit it Most of this went a bit over my head.I did enjoy it And I found out a lot And Cahoone is good But I think the subject matter, which is largely epistemological was fairly hard core And as an uneducated layman it was a little much.I did hear about some new names that sounded interesting Saussure, Dewey and Spinoza who I previously knew nothing about, and now I know a little.I also found out what Post Modernism actually is well sort of it seems that no o [...]

    6. Adam Shields on said:

      Short Review This was useful and well presented But also a bit of a firehose presentation I don t know how you present the last several hundred years of philosophy without being a firehose though.My philosophy background is fairly weak Primarily I was listening for the big ideas I did not retain who thought what for the most part But I did get a lot of the big ideas It is fascinating to hear a presentation of ideas that really have impacted modern thought I heard all kinds of ideas that I have v [...]

      Helps one develop a unified picture of philosophy Best one I have encountered.

    8. Friedrich von Uxküll on said:

      Professor Cahoone does an exemplary job introducing and elucidating on these fine thinkers and their works Would recommend to anyone with an interest in Intellectual History, Philosophy, understanding Modernity, or simply one who wants to learn about History and it s present impact generally.

    9. Chris on said:

      Having majored in Philosophy in college, but never studied anyone past Nietche or Kierkegaard, I always found my lack of knowledge of recent philosophers and Post modernism troubling This is far from comprehensive, but it is a fantastic survey to whet my appetite and to bring some understanding of recent thought.

    10. MathijsAasman on said:

      Excellent course, great overview of the Western intellectual tradition from the 1700s onwards to today It did have a large focus on what would be called postmodernism , of which lay critics seem to greatly misunderstand.

    11. Victor Negut on said:

      Dense It is a good idea to take notes, since there is a tremendous amount of information in this lecture series.

    12. Bry Willis on said:

      Lawrence Cahoone does a fine job taking the listener on a journey from the late 17th century into the early 21st century My biggest complaint about this 36 lecture series is that although the subtitle is From Descartes to Derrida , Derrida appears at lecture 30 I am not sure whether I should view this as bonus content after Derrida or if I should assume that I got the short shrift on detail between Descartes and Derrida.Kidding aside, Cahoone exposes the listener to the personalities and the pos [...]

    13. Nilesh on said:

      This series is unique Most philosophical compendium spend an enormous amount of time going through classical Western philosophers and various idea revolutions The professor here has no time for Aristotle and his likes The backdrop is from Descartes onwards but the time spent on the 17th, the 18th and the 19th century philosopher is also relatively less This includes discourses on Spinoza, Hume, Kant, Hagel or Nietzsche Rather, the story is of the twentieth century philosophy And all its various [...]

    14. William Ramsdell on said:

      I cannot think of a better way to race to a conversational level of familiarity with the cannon of western philosophy than this The series is truly an accomplishment The lecturer deserves enormous praise for his ability to weave the story of philosophy, while maintaining the necessary compartmentalization of a lecture by lecture format The greats are discussed, as well as some important philosophers that have escaped modern popular acclaim, which was a delight My criticism is only this philosoph [...]

    15. Sally on said:

      I really enjoyed this thought provoking series of lectures, which examines philosophy from Descartes up through the end of the 20th century, concentrating on what is real and how we can know about it metaphysics and epistemology The lecturer is superb The 20th century is scrutinized most closely, but since that is an area I know less about and one hears mentioned often, it was valuable even though most of the philosophy of that time is not destined to last two of the most prominent schools are a [...]

    16. Reid on said:

      Maybe not amazing , but very cool that I just got a half hour lesson on about every major philosopher from Descartes to Derrida, and I even know how to pronounce their names now Now I know everything and nothing, I suppose Don t test me, because I don t remember, yet, most of the 18 hours listening, but I did take notes, so it s an excellent beginner s course I d definitely recommend it library borrowing, unless you find it on deep deep discount for anyone looking for the basic theories of all t [...]

    17. Chad Kohalyk on said:

      I would have preferred time on each philosopher, even at the expense of the number of people covered in this course Cahoone is very good at restating and translating complex philosophical discourse, which makes this course very accessible.

    18. Lori Tian Sailiata on said:

      A course to revisit often Very clear and rich analysis of the Western Philosophical tradition from the Moderns through today Contemporary philosophy of science, language, and feminism was sparse, but otherwise a delight.

    19. Caroline on said:

      Very thorough and clear exposition of ideas and concise summary of the main philosophical trends of the time period.
