Online Lectures

Since 2011, I've been producing online philosophy lecture videos in my YouTube channel.  So far, I have somewhere between 700 and 800 to offer to interested viewers.  For the sake of convenience, I've organized them here into series.  Clicking the link for the series takes you to a full page containing all of those videos.


Philosophy Core Concepts: 150+ shorter videos, each of which is focused on one core concept from a philosophical thinker and text.  Each of these is roughly 10-30 minutes long. I've organized these into several sequences by philosopher.

Introduction to Philosophy Course Lectures :  86 videos from my Introduction to Philosophy classes, supplemented by several videos from my Ethics and Existentialism sequences, to help round out the sequence.  Each of these is roughly 1 hour long


World Views and Values Course Lectures:  54 videos from my entirely online World Views and Values class, covering thinkers from Plato to Martin Luther King.  Each of these is roughly 15-35 minutes long.

Ethics: Moral Theories and Applications Course Lectures:  35 videos from my Ethics classes, covering major thinkers, approaches, and moral theories. Each of these lectures is anywhere from 1 hour to 2 hours long.


Religion in America Course Lectures: 52 videos from my Spring 2014 Religion in America class.  Each of these lectures is anywhere from 15-45 minutes long.  Down the line, I hope to a much more in-depth set of courses on these themes and material.


Critical Thinking Course Lectures: videos from my new Critical Thinking, Logic, and Argumentation Channel, so far focusing just on the Informal Fallacies


Existentialist Philosophy and Literature:  an ongoing study of key texts and thinkers from this loose philosophical movement -- right now there are about 50 videos available, but eventually another another 60 are planned


Half-Hour Hegel: The Complete Phenomenology of Spirit:  a major project, which will eventually grow to about 250-300 videos (currently 66 available)  In each of these, I examine 1-3 paragraphs of the great German Idealist, G.W.F. Hegel's first major work. Each video is about 25-35 minutes long


Glimpses Into Existence Lecture Series:  12 videos from my monthly lecture series in 2014, hosted by the historic Kingston Library, examining eleven major figures from the Existentialist movement in Philosophy, Theology, and Literature. Each of these videos is roughly 1-1/2 to 2 hours long.


Understanding Anger Lecture Series  8 videos from my my monthly lecture series in 2015, hosted by the historic Kingston Library, examining ancient and medieval perspectives on anger from literary, philosophical, and theological sources.  


Videos of My Talks: these are talks I've given at various places over the last two years, ranging over a variety of topics, all of which were academic in some sense.
