    One thought on “Hebrews, Greeks and Romans: Foundations of Western Civilization”

    1. I loved listening to these lectures while driving. professor shutt is a great lecturer and easily kept me entertained and interested. The lectures talk about the ways in which the Hebrews Romans and Greeks provided the foundations of western thought, and I personally found many of his insights to be true. Highly recommend this course for exciting history lessons and further understanding of our own culture.

    2. Professor Shutt delivers again! His audio lectures through The Modern Scholar are always captivating. and greatly informative. His informal and down-to-earth tone feels like we're sitting in a tavern somewhere, but the knowledge and insight is extraordinary. I look forward to listening to his other lectures in the very near future.

    3. Excellent lecture series! This guy also has a series with The Teaching Company (Masterpieces of Medieval Literature) so you know he's a good lecturer. He walks through four aspects of Western Civilization in roughly chronological order: Hebrews (the Old Testament); Greeks (The Iliad, Odyssey, tragedy, Plato and Aristotle, Neo-Platonism in Plotinus); Romans (Virgil, Ovid, law and order, technology); Christianity (the New Testament and Augustine). The series ends with the conclusion that Western C [...]

    4. HEBREWS, GREEKS, AND ROMANS. (2003). Timothy B. Shutt. ****. This was a recorded lecture series recorded by Dr. Shutt, a Professor from Kenyon College. In all, I found the course to be well organized and well presented. Shutt obviously knows his subject, and seemed enthusiastic in his lectures. In general. the course provided an overview and background of ancient cultures that provided the foundations of Western civilization. The approach was to use literature from those periods that survived th [...]

    5. An entertaining overview of ancient civilizations of the West. Though as with most Modern Scholar lectures, these were pretty basic, I found something to like in almost all of them. Here's a list to remind me of what was in there:Lecture 1. Overview and backgrounds: Ancient cultures --Lecture 2. The Hebrew Bible: Overview and Genesis --Lecture 3. The Hebrew Bible: Exodus, David, the Prophets and Job --Lecture 4. Homer and The Iliad --Lecture 5. Homer: The Odyssey and the Birth of Tragedy --Lectu [...]

    6. I got this on a lark, from the library. They have a number of these "Modern Scholar" and other brands of "lectures on disk". This one looked interesting. And was. The lecturer came across well, pretty animated considering the subject matter. I'll definitely check more of these out, and would certainly listen to the lecturer again.There were some technical problems, perhaps my fault. I either got an entire disk repeated, or at least some tracks. And it appeared the final lecture was not actually [...]

    7. To be honest, the first part of Shutt's lecture was a bit lacking in my view. I've heard better lectures on the Hebrews from others. However, Shutt took on quite a task in trying to show how these 3 ancient cultures developed, interacted with one another and were slowly brought together in laying the foundations of the Western civilization we know today. In that he succeeded quite admirably and this lecture was overall very thought-provoking and well worth listening to.

    8. A decent survey of ideas that form the foundation of western thought. Enjoyable, engaging lecturer but I thought it was quite brief even for a survey class. I have had deeper experiences with survey classes from The Teaching Company but this was still far better than anything I could have heard on the radio even NPR!

    9. The professor's diction sounds just like my father's, who talked at length about all topics. The Foundations of Western Civilization makes connections and progressions in philosophy and influence of three people: The Jews, the Greek, and the Romans. I see now that all three influence my thinking, beliefs and ethics.

    10. It is a good enough course but not outstanding. The teacher provides lots of summaries of works. I think I would have liked it if he had been more engaged in interpreting the place of the three cultures to produce Western civilization. It wasn't quite what I was looking for.

    11. an excellent overview of western culture. learning through this modern scholar series is such a pleasure. the lectures are concise and connect myriad free-floating thoughts making rounds in our culture into an organic whole. reliable information.

    12. I will definitely seek out more lectures by Dr. Shutt. His enthusiasm for his subject comes through l,oud and clear and he is easy to understand. My only regret was that I couldn't ask a question about something he said! High recommendation!!!

    13. Great introduction lecture. Professor Shutt expertly connects past and present civilizations and suggests a lot of further reading material.

    14. I really enjoyed this lecture. Professor Shutt has a entertaining lecture style and he's able to speak off the cuff in response to questions with clarity.
