    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Every single person should take a philosophy course in their time at school. It really allows for the opening of the mind and enables a kind of self-interaction, where you are better able to find out what you really think, believe, and want for everything. It is the way of thinking that is critical to every other subject matter, from engineering to literature to medicine.

    Course highlights:

    This is a fantastic introduction to the philosophical way of thinking. If you've never studied philosophy, your mind will be blown.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take the time to understand the material, not just "read" it. If you don't understand, you won't pass. Also, this is not just "sort-of psychology", as the thinking goes. This is completely different, challenging your ideals and processes of thought rather than scientifically studying them.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it's full of new ideas. The professor somehow manages to explain old philosophy with contemporary examples and that makes philosophy 10x more interesting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course where the papers. It sounds weird but that's when most of my learning happened. Because of the way the class was structured everything you did in class helped me to support MY ideas. Never in a paper I was asked to talk about somebody else. So when a paper was due I knew I was going to think and come up with my own answers. I like to view it like this: my paper is house, how the house looks are my ideas and the authors we studied in class are the color of the house, the flower I have in the garden; they add to the house but are no essential. Because the course was structured this way I learned about free will, artificial intelligence, ethics and many other topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings after you went through them in class. Going into the reading already knowing what the professor wanted you to see makes allows you not only to see more clearly what the professor saw but seeing even more things! It's a great thing to do. You'll understand the texts so much more. The best thing would be doing the readings before and after, though I would recommend this only if you really love the subject or have enough time in your hands.
