    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class requires lots of reading. We have read many works of well known Philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, and Descartes. Many of the subjects that we learn in this course, despite them being very ancient, are relevant to our lives today. These philosophical ideas can be applied economics, religion, politics, education, etc..

    Course highlights:

    This course is very inspirational. It shows the importance of thinking, which sadly, a lot of people neglect to do when making decisions on a daily basis. This is a course that teaches you things that you can hold on to and practice for the rest of your life. It requires plenty of reading and analyzing. But it leads to feel enlightened by the end of the course.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take your time and try to understand every thing that is read. It's ok if you have to reread some passages. Don't be afraid to ask for clarity. Try and relate the curriculum to your own life
