Modern scholar vs teaching company
The Modern Scholar: Odyssey of the West IV : Toward Enlightenment by Timothy B. ShuttThe Odyssey of the West series addresses in chronological sequence the works that have shaped the ongoing development of Western thought both in its own right and in cultural dialogue with other traditions. Part four provides a close look at the period from the Renaissance to the scientific revolution and into the early Enlightenment. These lectures take in the immense variety and singular achievements that have helped mold our present societies.
Talk:The Great Courses
I've compiled a full wikified list of TTC professors that had courses in print as of May 7, , but only put those into the article that already have articles. Sandstein , 7 May UTC. I have a list of courses, but i am not sure if this should be incorporated. I removed the course list from the article. The company is offering new courses every month and they have a web site which lists them - there is no reasons to repeat that list here, which will soon be out of date anyway. In fact the list of teachers should be converted into a category, and the list from the article removed as well.. There are discontinued courses, I thinking keeping them might be more beneficial from a reader's point of view.
What's with the ads? My library has more modern scholar cds than great courses. How have you found them compared with great courses lectures? I've liked several. I think Michael Droit does the science fiction and fantasy literature lectures and they were good.

I have pimped the Teaching Company now called the Great Courses for years on this blog. I have done over 20 courses, and am nearly addicted to their offerings. Nothing bums we out more than to read their catalog and find nothing new I want, except when that happens I order something random I don't think I want and usually love it. I listen to music a lot less than I used to because I often have a Great Course on my mp3 player instead. Via Econlog comes a great article about the Great Courses , and make me feel a bit better that I am not alone in my obsession.
