Customer Reviews

Traditional approach to ancient Greece

Professor Kagan's lectures are wonderfully organized and delivered with elan. The man knows his subject and delivers the goods. Kagan apparently doesn't have a politically correct bone in his body and this results in a celebration of the Greeks and their part in the initiation of Western Civilization. His aim throughout is to connect the goings-on of ancient Greece with the subsequent history of Western Civilization.

Typical professor

Great knowledge just get ready to go through typical professor stuff, taking shots at religion/politics. was hoping for just learning Greek history ya know? Would give a 5 if he could just stick to the title of the podcast.


So much packed into one course. It is a major lesson on how we came to be a western civilization through the eyes & battles of ancient Greece.
