Starts good - if a little unsettling - then picks up stream. The last half seems almost like a Buddhist primer about how to conceptualize destructive or potentially unethical emotions. This is a perspective that often seems missing in the west where we often marinate in, overvalue, and even glamorize feelings like anger and revenge. Professor Breyer is even handed and thorough. He does a good job of not overselling his own personal feelings. As others have noted, the course is uplifting. I'd go even further. The surprising thing is how practical it felt.
