This series of eight lectures delivered by Dr T. J.

Each lecture has an associated hand-out (two for the first lecture).

Customer Reviews


Whether you have any knowledge in philosophy or not, I strongly recommend it to you, especially for those who intend to take such lessons in college. This course covers astonishingly well-structured teachings in every lecture, with rich material and concepts in handout. Oxford is one of the top Universities in the field of philosophy and religious study. You would definitely go through some mind chanllenge if you adhere to what the lecturer says.

Material is okay, instructor is a bore

The instructor read everything as if it was from a script, in a monotone voice. I found reading the handouts more useful than listening to his long-winded, boring lectures. In the end, the material isn't really that great and I wouldn't recommend this for anyone that wants to get into, or has some knowledge of, philosophy.

Terrible Audio Quality

It sounds like this was recorded by a student sitting in the lecture hall on an iPhone!! At the best of times, it’s difficult to understand what the professor is saying. At the worst of times, it’s totally unintelligible. The content is pretty good and the professor fairly engaging.
