David Gordon clarifies the issues. Amazing material for anyone interested.
This is a fantastic series of lectures. I'm not usually interested in summaries or brief descriptions of historical ideas because I still need to read most of the classics, so listening to summaries for me is kind of like watching a preview to a movie instead of watching the movie itself. However, I feel that I've gained a wealth of knowledge about some important concepts in the books on my reading list by listening to this series, which should help me when I read the, I'm expecting esoteric, material. And, for me as a libertarian, the history of political philosophy described here was laid out in a very relevant way. Right now I'm reading Plato's Republic for my Political Philosophy class, and Gordon's lecture on Plato has definitely helped clarify where Plato was coming from, whereas most other lectures or summaries of this sort would just have confused me even more. Thanks.
