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.

Workload:

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)
