Defining Reality

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Redefining Reality: The Intellectual Implications of Modern Science

 Defining Reality

Taught by Professor Steven Gimbel | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Take a step back to define reality as understood by the ancient Greeks. Then work your way forward through revolutionary ideas about reality proposed by Plato, Aristotle, Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and finally Newton, who inspired the Age of Enlightenment. Close with the Romantic backlash of the 19th century.

Pretty much a know-nothing. pretty worthless content and presentation value low for the first few lectures. I decided to simply not waste more time.
