    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend that everybody should take a philosophy course to open their minds to certain ways of thinking, and I am so glad I took my first one with Zoe as my instructor. I took the class my first quarter as a junior in high school at my local college; she did a great job of creating an open environment that made me feel respected as a student and welcome to the new school.

    Course highlights:

    The units were: What is Philosophy?!, Epistemology, Dualism, Identity and Metaphysics, Free Will, Religion, Ethics, Feminism, and Existentialism. GREAT intro to philosophy as a whole. I learned about knowledge, I learned to question my surroundings, I learned that there is always more to learn. One of the highlights for me was the feminism unit; a quarter later I took Zoe's course Philosophy of Feminism and it was a wonderful continuation to the intelligent discussions about gender in society that we started in Phil101.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Allow yourself to get into it. When the teacher asks you to think about something, actually think about it! Don't just write an essay on a topic because you were told to; really ponder the significance of the prompt and its application to your life - a good philosophy prompt will always have some sort of relevance. It can be easy to roll your eyes when you've been discussing what a table is for 45 minutes, but look deeper into the conversation and what it means in accordance to other/all aspects of life.
