I recommend this course because by opening my eyes to the history of different cultures and the history of religions across the world, I became a better person by understanding both history and modern events through different perspectives. This class forced me to look at events through different lenses, and this made me appreciate the difficulties that everyone, no matter their race, gender, or class, faces.
I loved the parts about the history of Asia, especially about animism and shamanism, which I had never learned. I understood this unique cultures through an objective - rather than critical - perspective. Rather than comparing these to Western religions and viewing them as primitive, I learned to view the world through eyes. I learned that other religions and cultures are as justifiable as my own.
