    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class made you think about life itself, ethics and taught culture in a deep way.

    Course highlights:

    Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, all of these great writers and philosophers essential to our culture, and yet few of us have actually studied their teachings. That is what this class offers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your daily write-ups. Those are essential to your grade. If you do those with an intent to actually understand the material your grade will be fine and you will benefit greatly from the material.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you want an easy class this is not the class to take. You are pushed to think outside the box and look for the deeper meaning in difficult texts. If, however, you enjoy thinking outside the box and don't mind a large amount of homework each day; perhaps this is a class that you would enjoy.

    Course highlights:

    In this class the teacher is very energetic and passionate about what he teaches so there is never a boring moment when he's teaching. Dr. Kleiner takes it upon himself to help us broaden our ideas of the world and the meaning of simple texts, objects, and occurrences we happen upon in our daily lives.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you don't enjoy thinking outside the box this is not a course that you would enjoy. You could, however, learn a lot from it. If taking this course I've found it helpful to try and stay one assignment ahead of schedule. There is one due daily and it is easy to get behind if you have lots to do in other classes. Also, Dr. Kleiner is very particular about the meanings behind the texts. If your ideas do not match his or his assistants you will not gain competency on the assignment. The best way to understand what Dr. Kleiner is looking for is to attend his class and listen to the lectures.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This has been a great class where we have been learning about Western Writing. We have been able to go through reading passages. The way he has us engage the material allows us to critically think. He presents the material simply and clearly. At the same time he keeps the class interesting.

    Course highlights:

    You have the desire to go to class to learn more. From reading the assignment you want to know if you were able to understand the reading. I never realized the importance to actively read a passage. To be able to actually understand the text. I learned how to read a text to find the important terms, arguments and propositions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are looking to learn more about how to improve your critical thinking this is your best option. At first you may think a philosophy class, but it is worth your time to give the class a try. I was at first skeptical. I have found a great interest in this class.
