Needs Slideshow and Reading Materials Included

I watched only a portion of the introduction and decided not to invest my time in this particular Yale course. This was ONLY because you cannot see the sideshow or other read the materials that are mentioned in the introduction as a crucial part of the course. I cannot rate the entire course. Some viewer may find value in just the lectures, I just wanted more from the course.

Yes to psychology no to coach.

Real psychology will make you uncomfortable because he will give you reflection of the self-esteem of oneself to help them fit into the culture. American culture is not a culture, but a subculture, characteristic of happiness to which we owe obligate to joy. what kind of culture can be in a way where every four years people are turned into chaos and insult each other for political, religious and racist views. Culture is modern and it’s not there.

Good Lectures

These are good lectures which are nice to hear just for the sake of it. Something I’ve noticed some people have rated it less because they couldn’t take the course as is. If you have itunes u on your iphone or mac you can pull up the slides, the syllabus, one of the two books you need, the midterm and final exam, along with the answer keys. It can be kind of hard to find on the app but it’s all there. I’m just very grateful that I can take a Yale Course for free and wanted to show support and help others.
