Thurman, Robert
[V2607] Buddhism: Indo-Tibetan

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Well, it's true: he is unorganized, the books are expensive, and it is confusing. But I still loved it. I liked the subject, I liked his lectures and I had fun. Everyone was a little worried about the lack of organization. But when you finally relax, the class can be really interesting.


Midterm, final paper, weekly postings.
Nobody should stress out too much about the postings. The Midterm is a little nerve-racking because you have to understand alot of philosophical concepts. Be prepared to have a really interesting final paper because he'll be reading a lot of them. (It could be about anything you've learned)
