    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    i would only recommend it if you were previously interested in philosophy and if you love to read

    Course highlights:

    highlights were the chances for extra credit, and I learned about many different authors and conflicting views on ideas

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read every book. only use sparknotes as a reference. Always be ready for a pop quiz

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    His quizzes are super easy- they're literally exactly what he said in lecture. That said, do the reading because he gave us a random pop quiz on the Nietzche reading.

    Course highlights:

    It was a super interesting, low stress way to get an intro to the basics of philosophy.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Come to class! His lectures are the quizzes verbatim.

    Dr. Amato is exceptionally well educated and well spoken. His lectures were interesting and engaging

    Course highlights:

    Dr. Amato did an excellent job of facilitating discussion which madee the class much more interesting than just reading

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books that he assigns. They are a good read, don't treat them as simply a requirement
