What a fantastic course! - I loved it as both an introduction to the key ideas of Buddhism, and as a fascinating commentary on the latest ideas in psychology. Thank you for making this course available.

Very interesting topic. The professor talks in a very approachable way, gives good examples and keeps you involved. Would love to learn a bit more about meditation vs modern psychology. Highly recommended!

Such an insightful course, thoroughly enjoyed every single lecture and writing the essays. Such an interesting topic, and really clear information. Robert Wright is a really engaging lecturer, absolutely loved it! I've encouraged lots of my friends to take the course

This was an excellent course! I had not much previous knowledge of Buddhism or psychology but it was fun for me to do.
