A series of lectures delivered by Peter Millican to first-year philosophy students at the University of Oxford. The lectures comprise of the 8-week General Philosophy course, delivered to first year undergraduates. These lectures aim to provide a thorough introduction to many philosophical topics and to get students and others interested in thinking about key areas of philosophy. Taking a chronological view of the history of philosophy, each lecture is split into 3 or 4 sections which outline a particular philosophical problem and how different philosophers have attempted to resolve the issue. Individuals interested in the 'big' questions about life such as how we perceive the world, who we are in the world and whether we are free to act will find this series informative, comprehensive and accessible.

Clear & Concise

I enjoyed these lectures. Professor Millican has a deep grasp of the subject. It is not difficult to hear which thinkers he prefers, however he does nothing to hide this preference so it is hard to call it bias. He does not seem to give unfair treatment to any of the thinkers, but the ancients are treated quickly with a heavy emphasis on the early modern period. This lecture series is not complete!


I'm sitting in my San Francisco Apartment, feeding these videos through my Apple TV, from my iPad. While watching, I switch to iBooks and follow along with the PDF slides. Brilliant.

The wonder of technology aside, this is an insightful and well put together sprint through philosophy. Highly recommended for beginners and experts alike!

Thanks a bunch!

The best out of free education, and that is being over generous. Thanks again and again for each video.
