Oxford’s Free Introduction to Philosophy: Stream 41 Lectures




You don’t need to go to Oxford to study philosophy. Not when it will come to you. Above, find a playlist that features 41 lectures from Oxford’s course called General Philosophy. Here’s what it has to offer:

A series of lectures delivered by Peter Millican to first-year philosophy students at the University of Oxford. The lectures comprise of the 8-week General Philosophy course, delivered to first year undergraduates. These lectures aim to provide a thorough introduction to many philosophical topics and to get students and others interested in thinking about key areas of philosophy. Taking a chronological view of the history of philosophy, each lecture is split into 3 or 4 sections which outline a particular philosophical problem and how different philosophers have attempted to resolve the issue. Individuals interested in the ‘big’ questions about life such as how we perceive the world, who we are in the world and whether we are free to act will find this series informative, comprehensive and accessible.

Philosophers covered in the course include Aristotle, Descartes, Hobbes, Locke, Berkeley and Hume.

The lectures can be accessed on YouTube, iTunes or the Web. General Philosophy will be added to our list of 200+ Free Online Philosophy Courses, a subset of our collection, 1,700 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.
