Great food for thought

This is an excellent series of introductory lessons on the philosophy that most shaped Western Europe. The professor has a deep knowledge of his subject that he effortlessly expresses in a non dense verbal style. Personally I would have liked a little more attention on the sources of Thomas Aquinas' philosophy particularly the tension between Aristotle and Plato, with a deeper reference to his debt to the arabic commentators on aristotle, however, the series of well thought out lectures are very listenable to and approachable by all.

Thoroughly reccommended.

Still a great series.

Some fascinating biography and anecdotes, even if you're familiar with his philosophy. Worth a listen.
