Philosophy for Beginners
Philosophy has been studied for thousands of years. It involves the use of reason and argument to search for the truth about reality - about the nature of things, ethics, aesthetics, language, the mind, God and everything else. This series of five introductory lectures, aimed at students new to philosophy, presented by Marianne Talbot, Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford, will test you on some famous thought experiments and introduce you to some central philosophical issues and to the thoughts of some key philosophers.

Highly fascinating
I have always wanted to study philosophy and now I have an entire intro course from a highly ranked institution at my fingertips! What is better than that?!

Simply fascinating!
I strongly recommend this lecture :) It is lectured with passion and really encourages to start an adventure with philosophy.

missing ethics and politics
this video version has 4 videos, while the audio version has 5? it's missing the Ethics and politics section! Please ignore my rating, I wanted to point error this out - not rate it, but it doesn't let me say "no rating"
