In this course, Dr. Nash explores the relationship between Modern and Post-Modern philosophy. This is done through an examination of the thought of key philosophers, such as Immanuel Kant, G.W.F. Hegel, Soren Kierkegaard, Karl Marx, and Friedrich Nietzsche, and an exploration of the major movements in this period, including Naturalism, Romanticism, Nihilism, Existentialism, and Process Theology. In addition, Dr. Nash offers a critical analysis of the early 20th century liberal Protestant movement and the Evangelical response, particularly that of J. Gresham Machen.

In defense of Christianity, and interesting.

As an atheist, I approached this series expecting a review of philosophers rather than a critique in defense of Christianity. Having said that, I'm finding the speaker very engaging and interesting.

condescending

Makes fun of Satre for smelling bad and goes on to do a half hearted job trying to explain the ideas in Being And Nothingness.

Just awful

I didn't listen to all the lectures, but the one on Hegel is a disgrace. I could pinpoint to many of his misunderstandings-he obviously hasn't read his work, rather what others have said about him- however I will highlight only this; for Hegel, empathy is the highest form of consciousness, which can only be experienced in mutual recognition. Freedom is not attained through selfish acts, but only in "recognizing and being at home with other-being as such".
