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.

Course un general isla interesting althoug I think that videos are too long and the part of moduls Is not very hypnotizing to me, a but slow in that part.
The rest Is ok.

Very interesting course. Good depth into the subject matter, a bit more enthusiasm from the professor could go a long way into making the course a bit more vibrant.
par Georgie J•
Very interesting course. Well worth my time and effort.
I’ve just ordered your book, The Moral Animal, after reading chapter 13 which you provided the link to.

It is a great course. It helps understand the buddha's teaching in context to the modern science.
But we don't receive a certificate at the end of the course

Very interesting course that thoughtfully reviews the naturalistic aspects of Buddhism in the light of evolutionary psychology and related disciplines

A nice course to take on a hard subject of Mind, Moral Truth. Found it enlightening thanks all the team for bringing such a course out to the world.
par LAZARO R•
The content is great but it would be great to have a booklet or something writing in addition because the teacher style is very much conversational.
par Steve L K•
Good course with interesting insights and interviews. I particularly enjoyed the various interviews with people that gives everything a nice touch.

An excellent insight into evolutionary psychology and how modern science seems to lend credit to Buddhist theory of the min and meditation practice
par Jessica L•
Great course when you have nothing to lose, i recommend this course especially if you have an interest in psychology or abnormal psychology!
As I finished this course and also got mail from you regarding the completion of this course, but still now i didn't receive my certificate.

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.

Me gusto mucho el curso, es muy interesante la similitud del budismo con la psicología moderna. Aprender sobre los nuevos paradigmas.
par NANDIPATI N R•
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.

Best course that I attempted so far.
It provides holistic view about brain/mind function, particularly on "suffering"

The theme of the course is very interesting however the second part of it should have been presented more clearly.
