The idea of a college course with "breadth and depth" is often used in a description. With this presentation, however, the lectures cover a vast range of topics and are delivered with a steady stream of insights. The professor, Steven Goldman, is seemingly able to present an entire half hour dense material from memory. He is rarely seen using notes or a teleprompter and but instead relies on a large knowledge base and decades of experience. For example, Prof. Goldman precisely traces the progress of state funded R&D from 19th century Germany to Vannevar Bush's plan in "Science: The Endless Frontier." I am equally impressed with his other more historical (i.e. Renaissance period) DVDs, also available under the Great Courses brand. This is the third Prof. Steven Goldman science lecture series I've seen. While expensive when new, Amazon or library options are good. These videos are an exemplary case of why "Great Courses" is right when it claims to have some of the best college lecturers on film.
