Ancient Greek Philosophers reviews
A lot of intentional reading is required.
This course was delightful and a pleasant experience.
Very interesting course. It was difficult but got through it. Took about 5 days, 2 hours or so a day.
It was a great refresher course for me to restore the knowledge I learned 20 years ago in my college days.
Definitely a lot harder than it seems.
A quick in-depth look at Greek philosophers. I enjoyed it!
Kind of tricky wording on some questions. You really have to read some of the words but, definately one of the faster classes if you are looking for a quick credit. Definitely gotta read your coursework though. Good luck!
You better get your read on.
Short and semisimple. There is a lot of reading. I wish there were videos on the concepts but, overall it's straightforward.
the video classes are honestly the most helpful
This course is challenging but you will learn something. You will have to slow down and read the material.
The course was very comprehensive. I struggled to understand some concepts but it was over all great. I have gained a new way of thinking and am very grateful I could take this course.
This was a very interesting course. I enjoyed learning about Socrates's life and story. It was a rather short course with 4 challenges and 1 test, but it was a slightly challenging course. I would still say that it was very doable, and I was able to complete it in about 3-4 days.
Short but tough. Finished it in a day.
it was a short course but had a lot of information
Its a good course. Must take time to think about the concepts, which is important in a college level course.
I learn a lot with this course, It changes my way of thinking.
This was a super interesting class. I had a lot of fun learning.
very very veryyyyyyy difficult class
