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.

Extremely biased and disrespects best Philosophers we know of , all the time

I don't know where this guy got his Doctorate from but for sure should have been a church .

A Fundamental Christian who disrespects every Philosopher and intellectual in the history shamelessly and the sound of his laughter only reminds me of the dark ages of church , I am so happy that these people do not rule the world anymore.

From Kant to Hegel to Nietzsche he mocks and laughs at them and his only proof and source to do so is BIBLE !!!!!!!

Modern Philosophy ???? what a shame , I would not have been surprised hearing this inside a church but not on iTunes . I ve listened to many Philosophy courses on iTunes but none ever got me disappointed to this level.

A shameful course that should be taken out of iTunes U , This is a disgrace to Philosophy, only thing he does is mocking Philosophy.

Solid content

Ronald Nash always had a way to bring clarity to very complex issues. This is no exception

Regarding "Nietzsche and Nihilism"

I don't know if Dr. Nash is intentionally modifying Nietzsche to fit his purpose; in any case, rather than a lecture on Nietzsche and Nihilism this is "Nietzsche" in the service of christian propaganda.
