Easily the most “enjoyable” course I have audited in years. A subject with which I am somewhat familiar became more compelling because of the professor’s enthusiasm and masterful orchestration – the sequential and conceptual arrangement of the topic. My fears that a presentation full of moral relativism and virtue signaling would serve to alienate me from fully immersing myself in the then and there of the explorers and the explorations were completely unfounded. The professor erred on the side of allowing us to make our own judgments on matters that only recently have become controversial, and he did not shy away from celebrating timeless traits and characteristics that have always animated humanity. Most surprisingly, he actually did introduce me to a few explorers with whom I was totally unfamiliar with – most prominently on this list, Ida Pfeiffer and Mary Kinglsley. Filling this hole in my knowledge of exploration was truly satisfying, not only because their stories were so compelling, but because they have truly been neglected.
