I thought this was a great introduction to both modern Buddhist thought and evolutionary psychology. Professor Wright is an excellent lecturer, and his office hours are informative as well as amusing.
Engaging content and excellent pace. While the level is introductory (I'd have liked a bit more depth), I would expect this from a lower-division/breadth course—and even more so from a MOOC like this.

There are many arguments really interesting to know, yet I feel as it isn't complete, even the explanations don't contemplate the antithesis

Amazing course, great content - I would have given this a full five stars review if there had been a "purchase course certificate" option.

Good courses. More practical examples will make the course more interesting. Mediation techniques could have been given more time.

The course was insightful. The lectures offered guidance and opposing views. I highly recommend the additional reading materials.

It provides holistic view about brain/mind function, particularly on "suffering"
