Extensive and thorough discussion of death, including rational suicide. Presented in a manner that even the layperson appreciate.

I won’t bother to write a long review, as the time you spend reading it could be better spent delving into this fascinating course, but I do want to say that Shelly Kagan is a riveting speaker, and he explored this topic with an astonishing level of depth, insight, humour and intelligence. And...Read full review »

This course was very captivating and eye opening. I think of life and death in an entirely new light now. Kagen is very enthusiastic and does an excellent job considering many different angles of the same situation and explaining each one of them step by step.

I watched this course a year and a half ago and now I am back. This time without visual and this time via iTunes U.

This is the best iTunes U series I have listened to. The lectures connect the aspects of death to the classic philosophical questions (existence of God, mind-body dualism, free will) in a manner which is both accessible and challenging. The audio quality is superior, so that the listener can...Read full review »

I've listened to several lecture courses as a fan as opposed to a student and so far I believe this is one of the best only I've heard so far. The audio is great (even compared to the other Open Yale Courses, which are usually better than most). Prof. Kagan has great delivery in my opinion. I...Read full review »

After listening to this series, I find myself more open minded about death. Kagan goes into the nature of death clearly and coherently describing what it means to die. After first describing the process and nature of death, he goes into its consequences. Often witty, he gives reasonable examples...Read full review »

I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks, and I have to say, that this course was up there with the best I have heard. Beats some good juicy novels. I read all the readings he had posted in the iPad course (syllabus) and got so much more out of his lectures. So go to your college library,...Read full review »

Very clear and engaging lectures on the nature of existence and death. Worth every minute.

I've enjoyed every moment

This is a great pdocast which I strongly recommend. You need to get past the first ep but after that all good. It's logic is impressive, it's conclusions interesting and the journey is entertaining. At worst your current beliefs will be strengthened at best you will lose some fear. Take the time...Read full review »

I rate these lectures 4 stars with some caveats. First the energy and clarity of the presentation are superb. The first half of the course was outstanding. The main focus was does there exist a soul within a person. Dr. Kagen examines the issue from all sides including what previous philosophers...Read full review »

I'd rather listen to this than talk to people while I drive

Inspiring lecturer

Have just started reading Ernest Becker, and this was a great "companion" lecture to listen to in light of Becker's theories. Dr. Kagan is an energetic and dynamic speaker who keeps your attention, even in an audio lecture. I am very glad I found this series, and I enjoyed each lecture immensely.

That it's over too quick. Shelly, if you are reading this I for one yearn to have actually been there to ask questions and take part in this course. This is the best course so far that I've heard at Itunes U. Congratulations and I hope to hear more from Shelly Kagan.
