Engaging content and excellent pace. While the level is introductory (I'd have liked a bit more depth), I would expect this from a lower-division/breadth course—and even more so from a MOOC like this.

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.

Excellent course, I like the way professor Wright introduce us to Buddhism and do the link to the Modern Psychology. Only beware nothing will be the same after this course, the concepts make us to think a new way how we are :). Open mind is the key.

This was a phenomenal course. It was very well planned out and enabled me to acquire a deep understanding of the important concepts. The assignments given helped to crystallize my own analysis of Buddhism and its relationship with modern psychology.

I really enjoyed this course. The subject matter was very thought provoking or perhaps it better said that it was thought managing. Great presentation by the professor and the obvious interest that he has in the course himself came across very well.

It is an amazing insight, although intellectually :) , and gives one the idea on what buddhism really is about. Telling the story parallel to findings of modern psychology is also a great approach. Well prepared, well told. Respect and gratitude. :)

Absolutely AWESOME course. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone, not only if they are interested in learning about Buddhism, but want to learn about life. Cannot say enough great things about the professor, the course, or the material in general.

The Right Course, for those inquisitive Hindus like me. Convincing synthesis of various schools of thought, which only an Evolutionary Psychologist can propound. Wish the Dr Wright moves on to the compassionate part of practices in the next course.

One of the best courses that I have taken in Coursera. Dr. Robin Wright is really passionate in creating this course, not just as a lecturer, but he really believes in what he is teaching.
The course materials and reading list are gems of knowledge.

Excellent course! I have found exactly what I was looking for: a very clear and exciting explanation of the scientific foundations of Buddhist thought. After that I am definitely continuing in both lines: meditation practice and study of the mind.

This course allows to develop an insight and open your mind's capacity to comprehend the unimaginable and focus on the most simple concepts that is mostly overlooked but creates an extraordinary potential that can slide through beyond limits.

This course was very insightful especially the correlation to modern psychology. It has helped me understand so much in depth about our mind works and bring some rational that i had been struggling to comprehend from many spiritual discourses

Very interesting course about the link between naturalistic buddhism and evolution psychology. That's a must to do for people who meditates because it gives perspective to our practice. Even if you don't do meditation, you'll learn so much.

Really interesting and wonderful course! I got deeper insight into Buddhism and learned a lot about myself, too. I can only recommend this for people, who are interested in how Buddhist thought can be seen in modern life as still relevant.

Very nice course. Prof. Wright does an excellent job reviewing the link between Modern Psychology and Buddhism using an appropriate numbers of practitioners and scientists to discuss the topics.
I look forward to read his upcoming book.

This is one of the well designed and delivered course, which looks at the philosophy of Buddhism and Modern psychological theory of Mind to convince a rational logical person to understand the depth of Buddhism to alleviate suffering.

Most vibrant course about Buddhism and Meditation that I have ever encountered with. Starting with four noble truth, No-self and so on. I believe at the end of the course it might be skyrocketing me toward the emptiness. Simply great.

Professor Wright is a great teacher! This course was not at all boring. It was very deep on one side and quite practical in the same time. Also his adorable dogs Fraser and Milo shows us the way to Nirwana. Thank you very very much!

Hits the spot! A sound approach to understanding where the natural elements of Buddhism and modern science might meet and how this can be applied to everyday life and developed further. I will certainly want to continue this journey.

Thank you for the course, it was very interesting to follow, learn something about the Buddhist theory and the theory of evolutionary psychology. And everything nicely made clear through the almost enlightened dogs Milo and Frasier.

Excellent course that shows how Buddhism can be rationally compared with modern psychology and how that comparison results in acceptance of its objectives, rules and believes since it is a "modern" philosophy from hundred years ago.

the course give a different view of the connection between Buddhism and Modern Psychology. It also structured the Buddhism very easy to understand. This is not the end of my Buddhism study. I hope to study more of it in the future.

This is the first time I take an online course and I liked it a lot. I could learn from people who are aware of Buddhism and Modern Psychology. Great videos, interesting readings, amazing information, great professor. Thanks a lot.
