    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is absolutely fantastic. Philosophy is a major component in understanding people and nations. By observing different philosophies throughout history, students learn to take aa position, defend it, and all the while appreciate how the opposing argument is valid or invalid. Students get philosophy and debate!

    Course highlights:

    In-class discussion. The in-class discussion is without a doubt the most valuable asset in this entire course. Students are challenged to defend their positions and analyze their own and opposing arguments. Questions such as "What is truth?" and "What is good government?" are posed to students after reading philosophers' writings throughout history. If on listens closely to the positions of others, one can gain an understanding on how personal philosophy shapes actions and improve one's ability to understand other people.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You MUST do the assigned readings. Dr. Vogt is tough and those who don't know what they are talking about get confronted. for studying, I recommend at least 6 hours a week to read and understand the material. Another great resource is you fellow students, as getting into conversation will help you understand the texts better.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course truly helped me with my writing and critical thinking skills. Even though this is a philosophy class, and I'm an engineer, I found this class extremely useful for many classes to follow.

    Course highlights:

    The discussions we had were extremely engaging. Philosophy is such a hard concept to completely grasp, but there are so many different takes on each opinion or work that the limit is only as small as your argument.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reread everything, even if you think you don't have to. Also, the texts are so long that the notes you take are so important.
