aesthetics and PHilosophy of at Lectures

This is an amazing collection. Although I am not a philosophy major, the ability of Professor Grant to make this subject relevant is truly a gift .

Astonishingly bad

I really can’t believe how astonishingly bad these lectures are. He reads Plato like an instruction manual, taking for granted Socrates’ complaints (which he outright conflates with Plato’s) against drama, poetry, etc., without once stopping to consider WHY Plato would choose to write all of this as a dramatic dialogue. Superficial, dogmatic, misinformative. You’d be better off just reading the Wikipedia article than getting an intro to aesthetics here.
