    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I took this course my first semester entering my freshman year. Personally, after taking this course it set the platform for my next three years of my undergrad. After this course, I was able to go home and tell my family all about the late philosophers, while also explaining the personal connections i've made with the course

    Course highlights:

    One of the many highlights throughout this course had to be reading Harry Frankfurt's book On Bullshit. First, we read the book and recognized Frankfurt's definition of bullshit. After, we watched Amy Cuddy's ted talk video on How body language shapes you. After reading and watching the Ted talk video, I couldn't help but wonder what Harry Frankfurt would think about the video and if he would consider it to be bullshit. Therefore, I had to email him. I looked up his contact information and ended up emailing him asking him his opinion. Before I knew it, I received an email back within a week and showed my professor. She expounded that no student has ever gone that beyond with her course, and how proud she was of me. Furthermore, she even added his response to me in the midterm and final. :)

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read read read. This course is all about reading and making sure you stay on top of your work. I read every night, and managed my time very well. Although many of my classmates thought that learning the philosophy about Plato, Aristotle, Socrates etc. was boring, it's important to create intrinsic excitement.
