Cahoones course provided exactly what one would expect, a very balanced and scholarly review of the major thinkers in this discipline in the western traditition over the last few centuries. His lectures are accessible for interested learners from any sort of background, he signposts his lectures well and defines and discusses important general concepts that link the various thinkers and provides the tools for the listener to develop their own opinions and ideas. The breadth of the course and choice of topics is spot on, including the prominent philosophers in the conservative, liberal, libertarian, communitarian and postmodern schools, as well as pragmatists, feminists and environmentalists. The lectures are broken into reasonable 30-50 minute segments, ideal for a thoughtful afternoon or commute. #Audible1
