    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a great entry level philosophy for students who want to learn more about epistemology and ontology. The professor is charismatic and insightful. The readings are stimulating and thought-provoking.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were its discussions about personal identity and the philosophy of mind. The professor has done a lot of studies in this area and so he is a great well of knowledge about these subjects in particular. I learned a lot about how we think about the persistence of the self through time as well as many thought experiments that turn our current idea of self on its head.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, I would suggest doing the readings twice, asking questions, going to office hours. Since you have to write a few lengthy papers, it is helpful to start early and write several drafts which can be looked over my TA's and writing coaches prior to submission.
