課程概述

This course examines how the idea of "the modern" develops at the end of the 18th century in European philosophy and literature, and how being modern (or progressive, or hip) became one of the crucial criteria for understanding and evaluating cultural change. Are we still in modernity, or have we moved beyond the modern to the postmodern?...

One of the best professors i've ever come across! If the teacher is so passionate about the subject material as well as conveying the ideas, the course will be excellent. This is one of those courses.

It was a fabulous journey, and brought me so much nearer to the great minds of the 18th and especially the 19th century, reading original texts, and listening to Prof Roth's wonderful interpretations.

通識向,入門級,科普西方現代性,教授人很可愛,但是講話經常有結巴,相比之下在耶魯的mooc會是我更喜歡的風格。脈絡不是很統一,尤其是從理論學說突然轉變成詳細介紹福樓拜小說,現代性思想的變更是著重於理論的,突然好幾課著重介紹小說文本本身的句子有多美,我覺得欠考慮,著重其帶來的思想意義和社會變革比較符合課程的核心。

It's a little annoying, because the videos are the same all the time... but the professor is very good, he knows so much about filosofy!

Only average. Much is said, little information delivered.

The course is the equivalent of a first year survey course. However, I have two honours degrees from Canadian universities and a community college diploma and have taught for many years. In all of my educational experience I have rarely come across a professor who is as difficult to listen to or attend to than Professor Roth. He has the mannerisms of a nervous man who is thinking well ahead of what he is saying and is making up his points as he goes. He stammers perpetually and many of his sentences contain numerous repetitions and often end without completing a thought. I tried to read the transcripts of the videos instead to spare myself the aggravation of listening to him, but the transcripts are a hopeless shamble of typos, misspellings, and nonsense. Here is an example of what I mean. "Morality is an expression of power. And in the first essay of the Genealogy of Morals, which is an account of, of, of morality, you've only been assigned the second essay. In the first essay, he says, it, it, he does say that morality is an expression power but is really perverse in the west." Here is another example: “You, because society's the ultimate creditor. And a strong society is a society that can say, you know, forget about it. You know? You, you, you did something really bad, you're at Wesleyan, you get 2 points. [laugh] 4 points now, right? You just[UNKNOWN] points.”

In short the course is moderately informative and interesting but destroyed by the presentation.

I advice NOT to take this course.

Why: the professor is never there to read your assignments. He leaves that totally to other students like yourself, to grade your written assignments, and, they do not read and give you a RANDOM grade in 2 seconds.

Don't take it, you will waste sooo much time on this one.

Not as advertized and way too much peer rating stuff--we do all the work the instructor does little or none--too much peer raqting stuff which I despise. And there seems to be no way to un-enroll.

Only one star as it was not made clear you could also get 1/5 points in assignments noted as ties but no further explanation. I don't think I will bother with part 2
