Like other courses on hot topics (the 'Justice' one on EdX being a prime example), this course tackles the hard topic of human morality with good taste, balance and elegance. Other terrible courses (Like the 'Critical Thinking in Global Challenges' one) could learn a lot from this course about how to approach issues with a deep sense of respect for disagreement and opposing positions. The lecturer is an extraordinary communicator that totally got what a MOOC should be. He put together a very thorough syllabus (for an introductory course) that will provide beginners with an extensive overlook on the topic, and simultaneously give the more advanced learner a useful systematization of research done in this area. There is no way anyone can get out of this course feeling like they have lost their time. I absolutely recommend it to everyone - after all, who would not be interested in a competent course on such an important and interesting topic as morality? You should know that the evaluation consists of quizzes, which are very easy if you pay attention to the videos. All the answers are there. They require you to think - but that is a good thing. You should also be aware that the approach followed is that of psychology,not philosophy (although there is also some dabbling in philosophical theories - something for everyone!). Overall, the only reason why I don't give it 5 stars is because the course is much too short. 6 weeks flew by without even noticing. A couple of extra weeks would allow the course to branch into other dimensions that would make it even more awesome. Also, a peer-assessed essay would have been a nice touch given the nature of the course. In any case, a solid course that everyone should check out.

We are very lucky that there are people like Prof. Bloom who will tackle such controversial topics in a worldwide open forum. Absolutely intriguing course. Highly recommend.
