    1. The professor is very good at making these philosophers relevant to today and explaining what their dialogs (in Socrates' case) or books (in Aristotle's case) mean. He did such a good job it took me a month to finish this course because I would often end up listening to the play, dialog or book he was talking about for free through LibriVox (why does Audible overcharge for those things?).Here's a mnemonic I use: think of three Greeks in their togas in a SPA, therefore you'll know the order that [...]


    2. Oct 2016. Excellent! I won't forget the notion of a "Presocratic Socrates," culled from Aristophanes and Xenophon, whom I need to read.Aug 2017. Again, just the lectures on Socrates and Plato.


    3. An excellent lecture series. I'm looking forward to incorporating some new ideas in my teaching of Aristophanes, Plato, and Aristotle this semester.


    4. Philosophy and Human AffairsThe course examined the thought of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, with special emphasis in moral philosophy. The evolution of the socratic philosophy, through the works of Plato, is exposed, without any tentative to distinguish the ideas of both thinkers (In Plato's dialogues, what are Socrates's concepts and what are Plato's ideas?). The life and judgment of Socrates, his way of living and his thought about education and piety are well examined. Plato works and ideas [...]


    5. In nineteen hours of lectures, Bartlett describes western civilization's initial attempts to understand the natural causes of things.

The threads from their work more than 2,500 years ago seem foundational to western politics, philosophy, and science as we know each today. As A.N. Whitehead, a noted 20th century philosopher and mathematician once stated: "The safes [...]


    6. Bartlett delivers the excellence we expect from this company. I'll miss him on my morning commutes, and plan to, as he recommends, use these lectures as an introduction to my own reading and re-reading. I'm particularly excited to look at Aristotle (the Nicomachean Ethics and the Politics) again with new eyes.


    7. Amazing! A great course on Plato's Dialogues. Before this course, I'd read just some of the Dialogues, and I'm glad I took this course before heading into the complete books, which I have scheduled for next year.
