    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I enjoyed this course more than any other course I have been enrolled in because it showed me a new way to think. We didn't just think like normal thinkers would, but we gave ourselves permission to get lost in conversations that allowed us to view perspectives and world views as if they were our own, that allowed us to come up with and discuss personal opinions that taught us argumentative skills, and that allowed us to understand lifestyles and topics in ways we could have never understood them before learning how to think this way.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was our professor, Eric Cave. He was courageous enough to not hold back when teaching us different topics and open enough to listen to and value our inputs on subjects and questions. It wasn't like we were in a classroom, but as if we were in a meeting room where we could all lay everything on the table and be philosophers for an hour and a half. We learned about the theories and rules of war, love, and even God, but most importantly, we learned how to explain these theories through essays, short response answers, and open discussions. We learned how to choose a side and not always be the devil's advocate in every situation because in the real world, sides have to be chosen. Cave taught us how to learn, interpret, and have a voice in a new way. I remember that towards the end of the semester telling Cave that I wasn't sure if it was Philosophy that I loved, or if it was just the way he taught it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would tell students to just go into this class with an open mind. You might not agree with everything that is taught, but that's not what the course is trying to make you do. The course is to make brains work harder than they would work if they were not given the opportunity to think outside the box.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would take this course because it is very interesting. It challenges your mind and makes you think about things in a way that you've never thought before.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to use my critical thinking in a brand new way. It opened my eyes and turned me into a true philosopher.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it. It's the best choice I have ever made. Actually after the course I became a minor in philosophy. That's how much I loved the course.
