Lectures were enjoyable, fun, clear, illuminating and even life changing for some. Overall, Kingwell's enthusiasm for philosophy was so perva- sive that it made his students love philosophy too. Students also enjoyed his use of anecdotes to clarify concepts and the atmosphere that was created by his musical selections at the beginning of classes. The course material was interesting; however, some found the exten- siveness and intensity of the readings overwhelming. Many students felt the course could have been far more manageable with fewer readings. Overall, the course and instructor provided an extremely memorable experience.
