Rick Roderick

Dr. Rick Roderick was a philosopher, educator, and lecturer.  He is best known for his lectures presented by The Teaching Company.  We will post a link to his website which is dedicated to exposing Roderick's work with The Teaching Company.  You will find a full biography and a quasi-CV.  

We highly recommend his lectures because they are representative of the philosophical process. They are not necessarily the most pedagogical in terms of teaching a history of philosophy in a traditional and systematic way.  However, they are indicative of a person who struggles to comprehend and understand the human condition and situation by engaging philosophers and their philosophies.  So, if you want to systematically learn philosophy, then these lectures are not appropriate for that.  If you want to watch someone lecture and try to engage with philosophers and their philosophies in an attempt to understand the human condition, then you may find these lectures very engaging.

Here is the link to Dr. Rick Roderick's Website:


The Ego and the Id by Sigmund Freud

Freud's place in philosophy is contested by many.  Some think that he should be exclusively in the psychology department, some think that he belongs to philosophy, and others think he should be in both.  Since this blog is dedicated to philosophical sources and citations, we have compiled a list of citations that are heavy on the philosophy piece of Freud's contributions.

1) This video lecture series is presented by Dan Robinson of Oxford.  He examines Hume's philosophical enquiries through the critiques of Thomas Reid.  This series is kind of a two for one, in that, we are presented with Reid's views as well as Hume.  In any event, the series is valuable for all levels.

2) An introductory overview of Hume's philosophy.  This series does not go into any significant depth, however.  So, this series is best viewed by the novice who has had no prior knowledge about Hume's ideas.

3) This lecture series is presented by Peter Millican of Oxford.  This series provides an overview of Hume's philosophy without sacrificing depth.  This series is worthwhile for people with previous engagement with Hume or for the novice who is picking it up for the first time.
