Good.

Nash was really likeable in these lectures. Once you get past the foundational stuff in the first few, it's a solid course.

Iffy

I HAVE ONLY LISTENED TO THE LECTURE ON PRESUPPOSITIONALISM.

I am listening to Dr. Nash's course on Modern Philosophy and was pleased to find this course of his on iTunes U as well. However, after listening to the lecture in which he discusses the methods of Cornelius Van Til and Gordon Clark I was completely turned off. His treatment of presuppositionalism was absolutely shameful. He mentioned Van Til's name and proceeded to characature his method very briefly and beat a straw man to death. It's my opinion that Nash's unfamiliarity with Reformed epistemology and presuppositionalism (of several kinds) disqaulifies him to teach a course on apologetics and the philosophical foundation of the Christian worldview.
