I had no prior experience studying Logic or argument theory. I have never won an argument in my life. I am a siver-haired ex-music major, so I found this course a bit taxing; however, I learned so much. The best thing about the course is that it kept my interest and kept me trying, even though it was difficult for me. In the end, it was all do-able, and that made me feel great!
I love history courses, but this was unlike any history I have taken before! It was a composite of Anthropology, Evolutionary Psychology, History, etc. So you are looking at wide swaths of human history from several vantage points, for which most history courses devoted to specific locations or time periods have no time. From these vantage points, human history takes on a new and exciting progression. Professor Yuval Harari is opening a whole new, and very exciting way to look at human history in this course.
Having very little experience studying Economics or Psychology, but being required by a friend who had taken Dan's course, I signed up for A Beginner's Guide to Irrational Behavior. What a ride! The organization and presentation of the course materials were wonderful. My study was boosted everyday by the types and variations in the way Dan presented his courseware. He uses many techniques to keep his students connected and related to the materials. The course itself is astonishing in many ways, and more than once I couldn't believe the results of the experiments Dan shared with us. I cannot recommend this course enough, and I love my friend for insisting that I take it.
