I have thoroughly enjoyed to lectures from oxford, uc birkley, harvard,yale.georgetown university were very enlightening. I wish I had teachers like these when I was student. Thank you very much. With god blessing.
only one of the four lectures are well organized. Others are more or less like casual talks where I did not learn anything significant from.
Got to say, I am very disappointed.
Other than the person speaking. Who is interested in them? History yes but not the speaker. Would rate it 0 but the lowest is 1 star
