History of Philosophy and Christian Thought

By Dr. Ronald H. Nash

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


In this course, Dr. Ronald Nash covers the history of philosophical thinking from the Ancient Greek philosophers, to Augustine, Immanuel Kant, and present day philosophers. Dr. Nash does this by focusing on three major categories in their philosophical thinking: Metaphysics (the study of reality), Epistemology (the study of knowledge), and Ethics (the study of morality). By examining these three arenas the student is prompted to critically analyze the philosophers' thought and analyze it in the light of scripture.

Customer Reviews

Excellent course from a Christian worldview

Professor Nash is an excellent professor with an obvious passion for teaching and philosophy. This course is a great overview of philosophy. Don't expect a great deal of detail since it is 2500 approx. years of philosophy jammed into a one semester course. He does have a bit of a bias as a previous reviewer said, but that can only be expected, in my opinion, considering this is a seminary course, the purpose of which is to relate all of the philosophy to Christianity. If there are philosophies in opposition to Christianity, the professor is obviously going to give an attempt to refute them. I would definitely recommend for a solid overview, especially for Christians wanting to relate secular thought to their own worldviews.

Great Professor !!

Ive only listened to Plato's Forms, but from what I've heard so far, he is very easy to listen too... very smart, and funny. I plan to listen to more !

Christian Critique of Philosophy

This class offers an evangelical take on the history of Philosophy. He looks at the major developments in philosophy over the millennia and critiques them with conventional Christian philosophy as the standard.

This class is best for a Christian interested in learning how to deal with various philosophical perspectives. It is assumed that the student will take a secular philosophy class; otherwise, the Christian critique would not be understandable.
