Interesting perspective, and good tie in to modern psychology as promised.

Robert Wright is if not the most eloquent person I have seen, at least one of the most. His lectures are clear and the subject is super interesting. As far as the third week videos go, I have not yet seen any statement from him that sounded presumptuous or extremely partial. The way the lessons were organized and explained, I believe, were planned for the western people that sometimes may be a little more skeptical of subjects such as Buddhism.

Phenomenal course! It cast a new light on Buddhism for me, which was absolutely fascinating...

Amazing
