The course was really beneficial especially for people who want to know deeper information about the truth of the begging, the main argue and how people are different in thinking.
Crate course, aimed at a relatively basic level but a very good overview of the topic and very enjoyable. Recommend a course to anyone relatively new to philosophy. Thank you.

It was an amazing course, filled with philosophical debates, with a balanced point of view most of the time. Most of all, it certainly got me thinking!
The course covers a myriad range of content, and brings together knowledge from various experts belonging to different countries and disciplines. It is easy for anyone to find their particular expected information. Content is organised excellently; is easy to follow, along with extremely interesting discussion forums. Had an amazing ride, and this course is definitely one you need to do with other people who share common interests, because there is so much to discuss, debate and share. Would have enjoyed more passionate instructor experiences, and am looking forward to more.

Generally very stimulating and interesting. There were obviously high points and low points, and occasionally the philosophy became a bit too abstract to take seriously, but nearly all the material was cogently presented and the presenters managed to remain impressively impartial when dealing with potentially contentious material.
One observation I do have though. Before doing this course worked though the Science-Philosophy course. That struck me as more like Science vs Religion. This to some extent felt more like Philosophy vs Science. Admittedly trying to discuss two of the ideas without mention of the third is tricky, but looking simply at the course contents I’d have struggled to decide which was which.

Super course, brings some clarity to the issues at hand. In my opinion, it does "dance" around the convergence of truth (small t) as something that can be derived form one, the other , or both routes: Science and Religion. However, does not distinguish enough (IMHO) between the cultural/social/political footing of "religion" and the core belief aspect of "god" (small g) in personal psychology: these are mutually reaffirming factors treated as a single "faith".

Very good readings, lectures and professors, the content was not what I initially expected but I ended up learning a lot and understanding epistemology. Only thing is most reading are in word documents which is somewhat inconvenient.

Good course but it seemed to end abruptly. It was missing some type of conclusory module that tied the segments together. Overall, the course was interesting and worth the time.

Another good course from the University of Edinburgh on Philosophy. Some parts were a little bit more in depth than I expected, but a good range of topics and mix of lecturers.
Very informative and useful information to support my school learning. I found the use of examples and metaphors useful to help contextualise the information.

Islam is the second biggest religion in the world and is one of the Ibrahimic religions. There should be some more research done on it.

An engaging and thought-provoking course. Week 5 (Scientism) was of especial interest to me and was very well presented.

It was a wonderful experience indeed! It helps to widen up the analytical power of a learner.

The course is nice, I did not get too involved though.

Very Interesting course.

Some segments were excellent, especially the one dealing with neurobiology and religious experience. Others, particularly the latter ones, were less clearly presented and did not seem as relevant to the topic.
By Leonardo R C•
My expectations about the course were others (I thought that It would be more esoteric than other thing)
By Lisa B•
Interesting topics but it may have been helpful to focus the course a bit more.

Really good. Taught me to carefully examine the path knowledge takes.

I thought that this course was generally rather poor. I was disappointed with what I saw as the overly 'intellectualized' language, which I did not think provided much insight. I thought that many of the issues could have been explained in simpler terms using plain language. Profs John Lennox and Alister McGrath are two Christian apologists who I think do an excellent job in reconciling scientific and religious thinking.
