Overall this is a good courses, but in this lecture the Professor tries too hard to convince you that his theories are correct and the mainstream ones aren't. He might be correct, but this reminded me of my non-mainstream Christian friends trying to convince me that Wesley was right and Luther was wrong. You better be very compelling to make that case and very interesting to keep my attention. This lecture wasn't quite good enough on either count.
