The Teaching CompanyWe’ve talked about The Teaching Company before on SFFaudio, we’ve even had one of their professors on our podcast (Eric S. Rabkin). But I’d never gotten one of their catalogues before. I found this one…

There are dozens of amazing educational options in there. Among the many lecture series that stuck me are:

The Story of Human Language by Professor John McWhorter
Argumentation: The Study of Effective Reasoning by Pofessor David Zarefsky
The Joy of Science by Professor Robert M. Hazen
The Life and Writings of C. S. Lewis by Professor Louis Markos
A History of Hitler’s Empire by Professor Thomas Childers
Classical Mythology by Professor Elizabeth Vandiver
The Great Ideas of Philosophy by Professor Emeritus Daniel N. Robinson
No Excuses: Existentialism and the Meaning of Life by Professor Robert C. Solomon

One thought to “New Releases: The Teaching Company”

  1. I really liked The Story of Human Language by Professor John McWhorter, kinda long though, but was sad when it ended.

    Showed how malleable spoken language is, much more than I thought, changing rapidly when not held back by the written word.

    I have never really paid attention to other languages as I thought they were uninteresting and always thought that English had a really logical solid foundation, learned I was wrong on both accounts.
