Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This professor is honestly concerned about your critical thinking skills. He is relevant, motivating, entertaining, and intelligent.
I learned how to question everything. This increased my drive to research everything that I learn, observed, and am told. This course also help me related typical philosophical questions, to current events that affect my community, my government, and my generation. I learned why certain aspects of our community happen, and how these aspects affect our future. I also learned how the apply to the history of our world. I feel that, if philosophy is not something you grab from this course, learning how to pay attention to important things in life is something you will get from this class. You learn that the real power is in the people, not in the items you wear, or how much money you have. I think this is a very important lesson to learn, especially in an urban surrounding, where the pressure to "look" successful but not actually "be" successful is in full effect. I believe this class gave me a different outlook on the things I value.

Advice for students:
Listen very closely. This course is mostly lecture, and it's very interesting. There are few handouts, but these were imperative. The book was used as another perspective of the lecture information. However, it is noted that the professor explains the content clearer.
