Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This was my first course exclusively on philosophy, and I felt that my professor did a good job explaining the relevance of philosophy to those of us with very little previous knowledge. Some of the readings were long or tedious, but we discussed them in class and that clarified the more difficult points. Phil grades somewhat leniently.
I learned a great deal about the differences between classic Greek philosophy and modern philosophy. We read the works of the philosophers in chronological order, which made the contrasts and evolution in their philosophical ideas very apparent.

Advice for students:
I would recommend reading both the assigned book readings and the sparknotes of those readings. Being well prepared makes class time much easier and will make any essays and tests easier as well. Handing work in on time is also essential, and usually he will give you an ample amount of time to complete any assignments.
