    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I believe that it is important to learn about philosophy because it encourages individuals to look at how and why things work the way they do and discover more about the world outside of their personal comfort zones. Philosophy allows the individual to come to a more educated answer and continue searching until they are satisfied with what they have discovered.

    Course highlights:

    Philosophy is an academic discipline that is used to understand and answer fundamental problems concerning matters such as, reality, existence, knowledge and life. There are six main branches of philosophy; metaphysics, epistemology, logic, ethics, politics and aesthetics. The word philosophy comes from Ancient Greek and translates to “Love of Wisdom.” Philosophy has mapped our entire existence. As the world becomes more modern, it becomes harder to believe that philosophy had a hand in structuring most of what surrounds us. Everything from GPS, politics and law processes have been heavily influenced by philosophy. Philosophy is at the root of everything based in science, mathematics, and art. It originated from someone who questioned why or how? Unfortunately, philosophy as a course is disappearing from our colleges.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The specific class I'm taking is self-paced meaning I don't have set due date requirements. My advice would be, to make sure you're staying on track of your course work and not falling behind. Make sure you plan and schedule out when you're going to do your class work and stick to that schedule. P.S. for this class you don't really need a text book so save the $200 you would spend on one because everything I needed I looked it up online. :)

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    My introduction to Philosophy class with Dr. Henry at the Marble Falls CTC branch was really eye opening and overall mind opening. I really enjoyed his lessons. Anyone interested in philosophy should really take the course. Or even if you have questions about life or ideologies.

    Course highlights:

    That class was really exercising your brain. In a way unlike math but really made you wonder about things you never thought about. You will learn tons about famous philosophers and their teachings like Aristotle. And how their teachings were passed down to their listeners.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:
