I don't think it's for edgy atheist teens. I'm sure they like it, but it really is very interesting.

His point about Christianity glorifying weaknesses of character is very interesting imo. The entire concept of Master–slave morality is as well.

Nietzsche is philosophy for edgy atheist teens as much as Christianity is religion for racist Trump supporters

Clearly a bit late to the party, but if you haven't looked into any of the philosophers any of these lectures pertain to, they're worth watching.
However if you've read the source material and have your own opinions already, they probably won't tell you too much you don't already know.
Still, excellent introductions.

Also Classical philosophy is definitely worth looking into and making your own judgments on.
Studying ethics at school was really validating for me. I mean the marks were a nice ego stroke, but the basic concept of teleology is the most compelling ethical component I have come across, it actually makes me feel like I have a place in the world.
Stoicism is effective for that feeling of cosmopolitan role in the world too, but it seemed a bit more idealistic than Aristotelean eudaimonia.

My course on applied ethics has been my favorite so far.

Funny you mention Stoicism. My History of Philosophy exam was based on the Stoics and Epicurus. I think I was actually kind of lucky to get such an easy subject.

Thanks a bunch for those playlists.

They really made me a lot smarter. It's so nice to be able to just pause and watch later. It's a thing you can't do in class.

Also I can take notes with timestamps.
