Excellent primer on each philosopher. Although Plato gets more airtime than Aristotle, Prof. Kosman is careful not to delve into the inescapable theistic conclusions to each philosopher's metaphysics.

Overall, the course is very fair, covering a huge array of topics passionately (his love for the topic is evident) and articulate (very complex and abstract topics are made understandable).
