The lectures are easy to understand, the reading materials informative. I thoroughly enjoyed this course and any beginner will be able to grasp the technicalities of Moral Politics after this Course.
excellant work dont by Dr Ian Shapiro and staff on putting such a mind turning,thought provoking MOOC on a complex and ever controversial subject known as POLITICS!..I hope to see more from them soon

I started this course with zero knowledge of politics and the like. Now I think I have understood the working of governments and why laws are made the way they are, according to history. I have basic knowledge and can now start forming my opinions on politics and the economy. Prof. Shapiro was a delight to listen to as well. Very knowledgable and graceful. Thank you

A little complicated to grasp for a non-American, but I managed to get a basic understanding of how politics were shaped through the many theories over the years, and try to apply my understanding to my country's governance situation. An insightful course that required quite a bit of thinking to keep up. Thank you Prof and the 2 students, for all the effort!

This is a great course to start. Although I am an Engineer by profession, i grew up following different political systems all over the world. I always amazed by the contradictory views of them. Finally, this course helped me to get a sense of different political theories and raised my interest much more. Thanks!
I enjoyed all Prof Shapiro's lesson about the moral foundation of politics. His class gave me an insight into how we developed our political views from the early days. It was a little hard to understand all the terms used in this course, so I suggest using your reading and research.
I'm glad I took this class; it was confusing and dense while being fascinating and thought-provoking. How's that for mixed feelings? It feels like a class I should take twice, the first time was prep and the second will be to learn the material and think through the ideas.

Thanks a lot Coursera.
It would have been better if a different face had appeared as instructor during the course of study of some weeks. The same instructor in most of the weeks' courses and leading discussions made the course a little monotonous.

Overall a good course. Although maybe a little bit short/quick on the Marxism side of it. There's more information about some of the theories of Marx (and how they are thought to be false), instead of the political side of it (stop exploitation).

I'm from Brazil. I'I had more work to read, translate and understand some of the issues addressed in the lectures. I am reading the texts slowly. I am returning to see some classes to better understand them.

Great content with much reference material provided to allow you to deepen your understanding. I would prefer a more standard lecturing approach than the intimate discussion setting used.

a very well taught, insightful and informative course, those who want to know more about the governance and politics, you can take it and gain some important knowledge.

Thank you for your work!
This course made me think a lot, showed a new facet of philosophy. At first I didn't like the course, but now I think it is one of the best.
Its a good course for any one who wants to go into politics, business or religion. Only thing i did not like was there was not too much teacher student interaction.

Throughout this course of Morals Foundations in Politics, I have gained a lot by attending this course. Wish that I would be able to gain a verified certificate.

Loved every second of it, especially towards the ends of the course with emotivist culture and the democratic tradition. Very very very high quality teaching
By Siddharth M•
A very useful and instructive course, with an engaging format; but could only be improved, if all readings were published directly on the course-site itself.
By Lenon H•
O curso fornece uma bagagem vasta sobre os principais teóricos da filosofia política, bem como uma ampla visão do conceito moderno de democracia. Recomendo.
By SAI D S•
the videos were really good and the readings were helpful and the course dealed greatly about the fact that democracy is really for everyone.
By Aasupal P S•
The course was engaging and informative.It teaches you the broader concepts in a deductive manner with completely all perspectives included.
By Zakaria G•
loved the course, would have just loved more videos and discussions about democracy, where it fails and how to deal wit that
By Calvin C•
"very inspiring, thoughts provocative course", that I have learned a lot as a lay man in the morality of politics.
By MARIANA L•
Very interesting! I just didn't like the conversation format of it, but the professor is great. Thank you!
By Michael K•
Instructor was great. Didn't like the format with two students. It was awkward and didn't add much value.
By Maria S•
Really informative and interesting. Thank you Coursera and Professor Sharpino for making this possible!
By Alfred M•
The course is a bit too long and unorganized. It would be better if concepts are separated in chunks.
By Teo S Q•
Course was pretty dry but insightful. Would be better if there was more videos e.g. animation.
