I really liked the course and felt that Professor Shapiro was very professional and also personal while explaining our coursework. I would recommend this class to anyone looking to learn more in depth politics, as well as some history into how politics came to be as they are now.

Great course- interesting subjects, well explained and engaging language used.

I Would say is excellent brief but concrete look at the enlightenment and the main ideas behind, for me the philosopher that make more sense is Macintyre and Aristotle but i have read the suma teológica and for sure the moral argument for the bases of the human is god law that it is written on our souls. I would say even without the theological view Aristotle is the person that makes more sense to me.

This is a mind opening course. Professor Shapiro explains the concepts clearly and simply. I've never taken a philosophy course or knew much about the thinkers talked about in this course, but he did a great job of giving me a primer to the minds that shaped our modern society.
