Testimonials

"Professor Cahoone is fantastic. He has a such natural conversational style that it makes it so easy to listen to him. I have never studied philosophy before, but I feel that I learned so much."


"Professor Cahoone is a wonderful guide - deeply knowledgeable, thankfully well-organized, and extremely clear given the depth (and occasional murkiness) of the works reviewed."
