I really think the lecturer presents quite complex concepts well. I have learnt such a lot, and will apply to the science of climate change.... that is, why do we pollute our planet?
"Worthwhile, but Like 'Angels and Demons'"
Solid stuff well delivered (except for the sad attempts at accents). But... listener beware: the crisp narration often begins a topic with hard science them moves to squishy 'indications' and then onto flights of conjecture that confuse correlation with causation and prescribe campus-fad remedies that frequently conflict with earlier hard-science points made. All this in the same, authoritative, faux-reasonable tone. One must listen carefully to separate the good stuff from the faddish blather. That said, if you can be self-disciplined, this course is worth its cost.
"explains life better than any scripture"
full of insight and makes you start to understand mankind
it realy explains why we are the way we are
so far none
knowledgeable and scientific
"it's Evolutionary psychology"
Other than stating the obvious,evolutionary psychology is pointless and irrelevant to humanity and history it self.Great book.
