LearnOutLoud.com Review

Certainly one of the best courses we've added into our new Free Courses Collection is Stanford University Professor Robert Sapolsky's course on "Human Behavioral Biology". Sapolsky is an award-winning professor, superstar lecturer, and author of numerous books including Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: A Guide To Stress, Stress Related Diseases, and Coping.


His course on "Human Behavioral Biology" is so good that The Great Courses (formerly The Teaching Company) invited him to teach the course for their customers in an audio & video course entitled Biology and Human Behavior: The Neurological Origins of Individuality. We've purchased and listened to that course in its entirety and it's incredible! Now the course is being offered for free on video from Stanford University and it seems like basically the same course except more! The Teaching Company course runs 12 Hrs. and the free video edition at Stanford runs 36 Hrs.


The course comprehensively covers human behavior from the perspective of biology from an in-depth look at the nervous system, limbic system, and hormones to the latest discoveries in neuroscience, genetics, and human evolution. Sapolsky attempts to give you a well rounded picture of the biology of human behavior today. And after that, he then takes a look at certain human behaviors which can be examined from this perspective including lectures on human sexual behavior, aggression, language, schizophrenia, and what makes up for the individual differences in humans. This 25-lecture course is available on video on YouTube.

avoid catagorical thinking
Reviewer john.johnson
 March 23, 2012
Most of this is Pop nonsense. The premise of the course and how to avoid categorical thinking. At the same time, this appears to only be available on iTunes. Those not thinking in the mainstream podcast categories, for instance Linux users, are locked out. So he, himself, puts his work in one category. Gives you an idea what this is all about.
