I found this course very interesting and interactive. I especially enjoyed the week of extra videos where we went into detailed psychological concepts like dreaming. Thank you for an amazing 12 weeks!
This course made me think deeply about myself and my experiences within the world around me. The lectures are didactic and instructive and the analogies with day-to-day topics made them even greater.
