I thought this was a great introduction to both modern Buddhist thought and evolutionary psychology. Professor Wright is an excellent lecturer, and his office hours are informative as well as amusing.
I have been practicing meditation for two years already.In so far I have attended all Deepak Chopra meditation experiences which I found very helpful but not as helpful this course provided me so far.

Gradually things were unfolded beautifully. Concepts of Buddhism, which were supported by modern psychology were explained logically and with good examples.

Really interesting topic. Robert Hansen does a great job linking two (seemingly) completely different topics while explaining both of them in depth.
