    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course! It is required by our school, and there is a definite reason that it should be. The course is uplifting and enlightening, although you may leave class or finish your homework with a little bit of a headache- no one ever said philosophy doesn't make you think!

    Course highlights:

    From the wandering ways of Socrates through Descartes' confusions and Kant's morals, this course gives you a basic understanding of the philosophies that have built the way we thing. To quote the ever thinking Descartes: "I think, therefore I am."

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In taking this course, here are a few words of advice: Take notes! Listen in class! Do the work! If you don't understand the material, speak to the Professor. Ask help from a friend who has taken the course before. Don't give up. Even when you think your brain might melt from over-philosiphying, remember that in the end, this course will have made a thinker of you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed taking the class because it was so unlike anything I have ever taken. I enjoyed learning about different philosophers and their views on different things, such as happiness and morals.

    Course highlights:

    Being a religious school, it was awesome to read material from Joseph Smith and be able to connect it to other non-religious philosophers.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reread the book passages as many times as you need to to make sure you completely understand everything they are talking about. It'll make class the next day easier.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course with Professor Armstrong because he helps you to deeply learn the material. You become a better thinker and get to contemplate questions you have never thought about before.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a deep, intellectual, answer to many of life's questions. My favorite part are the questions that come up during the presentation you give as part of the curriculum. They help you dig into your mind and really question how you think.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to read, and to be challenged in your vocabulary. It is a great course, but is harder than one might guess. Do not under estimate assignments.
