    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I learned so much in that class. Coming from a high school where I was never taught to critically think for myself this class was SO important to the beginning of my liberal arts education.

    Course highlights:

    I learned to critically think. I learned about most of the most important early philosophers and their thoughts on what the human person is. And eventually we learned what makes up a human person.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read. Don't skip. Also pay super attention in class. All of his quiz and test questions come from his lectures. Also participate in class. Do NOT be quiet or timid. It's a lot of reading, but its so worth it.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because I had no interest in philosophy taking this class, and after this class and all I learned about Human nature I have an even greater respect for philosophers.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the great works of ancient medieval thinkers like Plato and Socrates and I was able to contrast it with more modern or contemporary thinkers like Aquinas and Freud.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this class one basically has to do all the readings and have an open mind about the philosophers, as their works are sometimes confusing I would advise one to always be present in class for an explanation

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because both the professor and the topic of the course, had a life changing effect upon me. This course speaks to the heart of the student and strives to make known to him what it means to me a 'human person' in the fullest sense. For example, does a person have inherent value? Does a person have a soul? These are the questions that have plagued the human mind for centuries and the same questions we will ask our selves when we see our first child be brought into the world. And as we lay in our death beds about to take our last breaths.

    Course highlights:

    r. Harold presented the philosophy of Personalism in such a way that not only was I able to understand a difficult subject but I was deeply effected , as a person, by his teaching and by what he was teaching.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the passages he advices you to read! Not only will this ensure that you ace the course but you will also gain knowledge and wisdom. I was introduced to my favorite philosopher through reading the required readings. Also, do not let the idea of a final paper scare you. He does not grade harshly but only wishes to see if you gained some understanding of anything he taught thought out the course. Pick and easy topic you understood and that truly impacted you. That way you can not only prove you gained knowledge but you can write from the heart.
