    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course opened up my mind and helped me to realize a little bit more about the human psyche, and the common misconceptions that we make based on different misunderstandings.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how the human psyche works. It is amazing that most of the things in our lives that we take to be our moral compass, don't serve others in the same way. The professor was a very big influence on making this course enjoyable.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to come into the class with an open mind and be ready to have some of your common views to be challenged. It is not a class that is meant to convert or change your thoughts, but just to expand your thinking.

    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.
