    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    None of the material covered seemed to be very useful in any real-world situation. We spent half the semester talking about ancient Greek philosophy, which is interesting. Just doesn't seem very useful for today.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were talking about Aristotle, and feminist philosophy. I learned with feminism is all about and what it means to be a feminist.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the assigned readings. They will prepare you for the lectures and you will better understand the material being covered, when it comes time for exams.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy can be extremely boring if treated incorrectly. Dr. Istvan really understood what he was teaching and understood how he should teach it.

    Course highlights:

    Our unit about god was incredibly interesting. I learned that there are actual arguments in this realm, and not just opinions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book and take the tests seriously.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It has been the most rewarding classes that i have taken so far. We are taught to push our beliefs and figure out why we think the way that we do.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course for me was the ethics portion where we talked about what classified a living being as a person, which really sparked my interest because it showed a lot of holes in people's reasoning.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    As long as you read the articles and the book you will be fine. keep your mind open when you are listening to what other people have to say. it can really change the way you see things.
