Even my seven year old daughter enjoys the Socratic banter.
Greatest class I found so far
I enjoy this class immensely. I love the easy charm of Professor Sandel. Love his teaching style - he is not giving you answers, you have to find it yourself, very engaging. I wish I had the opportunity to be his student when I was young. Would have made me a lot more thoughtful and probably smarter. Please please put out more of his class!
Excellent introduction to philosophy
I wish every college student would be first exposed to philosophy by Professor Sandel. I first took a class in philosophy from a local college where the professor spent the first half of the semester attempting to prove their was no God, and the second half yelling at students for asking questions that interrupted his convoluted lectures. Personal beliefs aside, I didn't learn anything about the actual subject of philosophy. I was totally turned off by the subject until I watched the first lecture by Mr. Sandel, and I was hooked. Definitely worth your time, I'm currently in a political philosophy class, and I've found that some of these lectures have given me great insight into other courses. Probably the best lecture series on iTunes at the moment.
