This course is an excellent survey of ancient thought. It covered Parmenides all the way to Plotinus. Dr. Bradshaw is an excellent teacher with a remarkable understanding of the subject. Even
This class gives a wonderfully in depth understanding of Aristotle's metaphysics and theology, Plato's understanding of theology, as well as the Stoics. The highlight of the course was the overview of The One in Plotinus' writings. Reading the primary texts for these thinkers was a challenge but incredibly rewarding.
