Good Afternoon. It's with some sadness that I verified that I have no longer access to this course. I got to know about coursera some weeks ago and immediately engaged in this course (even though it was finished already). I was following it very passionately, I just started with week 2, reading Descartes, and was dedicating this hours to seeing some more video lessons. Unfortunately I can't keep going...
Does anybody here have an archive of the course videos and readings links? I wanted it very bad for my days have been super entertaining with this studies. So I ask you students and you the professor for help.

Hope to get an answer.

Amazing course! Prof. Green is an exceptional teacher who knows the subject and delivers it with love! It didn't feel like an academic course but rather like an interesting discussion. Great philosophers Ryle, Freud, Descartes were sharing their point of views on the nature of human being, raising questions, and seeking answers. What is self? What is the "right act"? What dreams are telling us?

The last few weeks Buddhists also joined the discussion with their wise Koans and The Principle of Lightness. We, students, were deeply involved. Many were writing and sharing essays with their own research on the subject!..Another great thing about this course that there were no weekly deadlines for quizzes, the only requirement was to submit them all by the end of the course. All answers to the quiz questions are in the lectures. No additional resources are needed. Just listen carefully...I'm going to miss this class, its spirit, our FB group, and great storylike Prof. Green's lectures.

Prof.Green is an amazing story-teller. I never understood or enjoyed reading ancient texts, but with M.Green's "translation" they became as current as modern literature. Socrates' or Descartes' questions about meaning of life remain open and as applicable to our times as they were centuries ago. I think the journey of knowing thyself is reconciliation and finding peace with thyself. This class is just about it.

This is probably the best MOOC class I have ever taken! Sad that it is not available for the public now, but really hope Dr. Mitchell Green would teach this class again!!

The course was awesome as well as Prof. Mitch Green. I would recommend it to anyone who may wish to look within and question some of the conditionings of his/her life.
YOu will certainly know stuff about you!
