I have been interested in the subject for a long time and cannot believe how much more I learned with this course. This is the 16th course I will complete with Coursera and is already one of my favorites. The approach to a complex subject through a "dialogue" between History and Literature made it greatly enriching. I highly recommend this course for its content, for its professors and for the smooth fashion that our questions and concerns were addressed by the TAs outstanding work. Chapeau!

An outstanding course by an outstanding teacher. If only one word had to be used to define Professor Zelikow's teaching style, that would be Elegance.

An excellent course. Professor Brown offers the students a very rich account of the History and the role of women's activism leading to the Civil Rights movement, with a main focus on African Americans. Not only the video lectures are very engaging but the reading material, especially the access to primary sources is unique.

What can I say about this course? It has been an amazing experience! Every week Professor Roth comes up with a better lecture. The reading materials are extremely engaging as is Roth's teaching style. The assignments are challenging but very rewarding.

An interesting course in terms of format, but not very challenging. The lectures were too short and barely covered the content. A little disappointing.

It was a nice course, but not very challenging as we expect from a Philosophy course. Some lectures were extremely short and did not cover the topics at length. It started very well and seemed very promising, so probably those issues will be solved for the next edition.

Very interesting course but quite challenging. A very interesting introduction to logic, though. I had no previous experience in the field but walking my path through lectures and readings I ended up obtaining a "distinction" certificate.

Outstanding course and outstanding Professor! I will never write or read the same way I used to do. The course far exceeded my expectations and I would love to see a second edition soon. Thank you to Professor Sainani, to Stanford University and to Coursera. You are truly writing the future!
