Engaging content and excellent pace. While the level is introductory (I'd have liked a bit more depth), I would expect this from a lower-division/breadth course—and even more so from a MOOC like this.
I have been practicing meditation for two years already.In so far I have attended all Deepak Chopra meditation experiences which I found very helpful but not as helpful this course provided me so far.

Very interesting topics are discussed in this course. I walked away with some new thoughts and ideas about modern science and how they compared to ancient teachings. Well worth the time.

very interesting, and high level of teaching. The only downside is that the course is mainly talking heads, and some dogs :-) . It could be improved with some more reading material.

very clear and more importantly it keeps me engaged through the instructor delivery -- he presents the content in his own word and brings modern evolution perspectives on Buddhism

Interesting course, specially because it's focused in a scientific (not mystic) way, and approaches the Buddhist doctrine from a very academic point of view. Very educative!

Very interesting course. Good depth into the subject matter, a bit more enthusiasm from the professor could go a long way into making the course a bit more vibrant.

Very interesting course. Well worth my time and effort.
I’ve just ordered your book, The Moral Animal, after reading chapter 13 which you provided the link to.

It is a great course. It helps understand the buddha's teaching in context to the modern science.
But we don't receive a certificate at the end of the course

Very interesting course that thoughtfully reviews the naturalistic aspects of Buddhism in the light of evolutionary psychology and related disciplines
By Amanpreet S•
A nice course to take on a hard subject of Mind, Moral Truth. Found it enlightening thanks all the team for bringing such a course out to the world.

The content is great but it would be great to have a booklet or something writing in addition because the teacher style is very much conversational.

Good course with interesting insights and interviews. I particularly enjoyed the various interviews with people that gives everything a nice touch.

An excellent insight into evolutionary psychology and how modern science seems to lend credit to Buddhist theory of the min and meditation practice
By Jessica L•
Great course when you have nothing to lose, i recommend this course especially if you have an interest in psychology or abnormal psychology!
As I finished this course and also got mail from you regarding the completion of this course, but still now i didn't receive my certificate.

There are many arguments really interesting to know, yet I feel as it isn't complete, even the explanations don't contemplate the antithesis

Amazing course, great content - I would have given this a full five stars review if there had been a "purchase course certificate" option.

Me gusto mucho el curso, es muy interesante la similitud del budismo con la psicología moderna. Aprender sobre los nuevos paradigmas.
By NANDIPATI N R•
Good courses. More practical examples will make the course more interesting. Mediation techniques could have been given more time.
By SHERRY S•
The course was insightful. The lectures offered guidance and opposing views. I highly recommend the additional reading materials.
