Dallas Willard

Metaphysics (1984)

Metaphysics was the topic Dallas Willard taught more often than any other. In this series you'll be given a seat in the classroom (USC Spring Semester 1984 to be exact) and get to hear Dallas the college professor work through some philosophical issues he took very seriously. The person recording these lectures is using a handheld recorder so hearing can be difficult, especially when Dallas is at the chalkboard. But with patience, 99% is audible. The series is valuable even for those of us who were not philosophy majors as Dallas does about as good a job as any at bringing everybody along. [Editor's note: We will be releasing these lectures week by week until all twenty are out. There are a few missing which by God's providence may one day be found.]
