      The two business law courses on Contracts & Torts by Prof. Frank Cross are outstanding.

      Hi,
      my wife and I are 86 and 87 respectively. We own 22 lectures on DVD. We started with Human Anatomy, the Astronomy - and we were hooked. What a company. We buy DVDs because of graphics and also we want to watch the lecturers. Some are a show of their own. Prof. Pollock comes to mind (Particle Physics).My wife grew up in Germany at a time when girls only needed to know how to darn socks. Now she is catching up. And life is not over at 87.

      Definitely Daniel Robinson's Great Ideas of Philosophy. He is an excellent lecturer--highly precise in his wording and engaging--and any one of his lectures could be transcribed to make a wonderful essay. Ever the psychologist, also (he was trained in neurophysiology), he never fails to tie the topics in to real historical and contemporary issues. Simply fantastic. I've learned easily as much from his series as from almost any of the courses I've taken in school, and as a student of cognitive science and philosophy he's been a great resource.

      My name is Anders, and I am a teaching company addict to =).

      You seem to have covered most of my favorite courses already with two exceptions, namely the lectures on the first and second world war, couldn't stop listening...

      I haven't started it yet, but I bought some DVDs from them on the history of mathematics. They look fascinating.

      Dear Roger,

      Thought you might like to hear the courses I've enjoyed so far -

      Emerson, Thoreau and the Transcendentalist Movement
      Ashton Nichols

      The Joy of Mathematics (DVD only)
      Arthur Benjamin

      Classics of British Literature
      John Sutherland

      Shakespeare: The Word & the Action
      Peter Saccio

      I am currently listening to The History of Christian Theology, Philip Cary, and Bach and the High Baroque (I understand you've taken this and enjoyed it)

      I'd be interested in hearing any other sources of classes you have discovered besides The Teaching Company.

      Best,

      Annette

      Hi!
      I discovered the Teaching Company lectures with Classics of Russian Literature and was very impressed.
      I kept on listening on the bus on the way to my office all year long:

      - Great Ideas in Philosophy (amazing for philosophy newbies like me)
      - Philosophy and religion in the West (most of it is AWESOME)
      - From Plato to Postmodernism (by great,great teacher Louis Markos)
      - Rise and fall of Soviet Comunism (a rather conservative but very good teacher)
      - Introduction to Greek Philsophy

      I listened to a couple others i didn´t enjoy as much.
      The most prominent feature of the lectures is that they don´t require reading, so they´re pretty light. For more deep courses, you gotta go to the university websites (webcast.berkeley.edy, yale, etc), where they broadcast lectures. You gotta read to follow this ones though.

      This was a really quality post. In theory I'd like to write like this too - taking time and real effort to make a good article... but what can I say... I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.
