"Western Heritage: From the Book of Genesis to John Locke" - Lecture 1
Presenting the 11-part Hillsdale College course titled "Western Heritage: From the Book of Genesis to John Locke."
This first, introductory lecture, titled "Jerusalem, Athens, and the Study of History at Hillsdale College," is given by Larry P. Arnn, President and Professor of History and Politics, Hillsdale College. The remaining 10 lectures are presented by various other Hillsdale Professors, including: Korey D. Maas, Assistant Professor of History; Kenneth R. Calvert, Associate Professor of History; Paul A. Rahe, Charles O. Lee and Louise K. Lee Professor in the Western Heritage; Matthew Gaetano, Assistant Professor of History.
Also, with this series we return to the original format of having first a Lecture and then a Q&A, both of which are scheduled to be posted on the same day.
As always, thank you for tuning in to these important series' by Hillsdale College, and for your comments. Carpe diem!
Hillsdale College (https://www.Hillsdale.edu) has many online courses available for free to all. Most of these courses are on a 10-week schedule; that is, one lecture/Q&A per week for 10 weeks. I plan on making these available on that same one-per-week schedule, regardless the overall number of weeks involved in a given course (5, 10, 11...whatever). Most of the courses involve a "Lecture" and a "Q&A." Some, however, may have an "Introduction" (or something similarly titled) in addition to only a Lecture or a Lecture and Q&A. Whatever video content is available for that week will be posted at roughly the same time, if I have it all (which, at this time, I do).
Considering how easy it is to participate in these free-to-watch courses via the Hillsdale website, I encourage visitors here to consider that. For those who, for whatever reason, would rather view this content elsewhere, I am making them available here. (I believe there is no copyright issue, but I make no guarantees that the content will always be available here. Another reason, perhaps, to consider following the coursework via the Hillsdale website.)
At present I have available approximately 16 courses, most of which are on a 10-week schedule. At the first posting for a new course, I will endeavor to properly indicate the number of weeks for that particular course. There are more than two dozen courses available from Hillsdale, but I have chosen only these. (Note that this number will likely grow, as Hillsdale continues to add courses.)
Videos should be viewable starting between 0000UTC and 0600UTC on Fridays.
Although founded in America in 1844, Hillsdale College's message is, I believe, relevant to all people everywhere. However, the overwhelming majority of the coursework focuses on America's heritage, Constitution, overall form and workings of government, and God.
