Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Prof Murray knows what he is talking about. He teaches abstract concepts in a way that is easy to understand. He takes a course that might be daunting for many people, and distributes the marks through writing assignments and short answer tests. This class was something that I was not looking forward too, but thanks to Prof. Murray I am considering taking the continuations in my following years.
Ii gained a lot of knowledge concerning epistemology and metaphysics. Not only are these concepts very few people know about, they can be very complicated and require a high level of knowledge. Prof. Murray created hand outs for each class that included all of the course material that we would need to know, and this made it really easy to find things to study for tests and midterms, as well as arguments to include in your papers. I learned many arguments for and against the skeptics hypothesis, as well as about causation and time, including time travel and paradoxes.

Advice for students:
Study the hand outs! That is really all you need to do to do very well in this course. If you listen in class, and use the TAs to make sure you understand the concepts, then you will be able to do very well in this class. The TAs are a very helpful resource, and the tutorials did well to clear up any outstanding confusions in the class. My TS was very knowledgeable and available when I needed any help.
