Philosophy and Human Values -

     This course is called Philosophy and Human Values, and while it certainly has much to do with these two, it also deals with much more. It also dives into politics, modern society, and the future, and shows Rick Roderick's unique views on these many topics. Throughout much of this course he delves into aspects of modern culture (particularly American) so often that I would consider it a critique of modern society as much as it is a history of philosophy and values. His viewpoints often come out as extremely pessimistic, often seeming to point towards a totalitarian world devoid of human meaning. It is a shame Rick Roderick died so young, as it would be very interesting to hear his views today.
