Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This is a class in which discussion is recommended, in which questions like "What does it mean to exist?" is often asked. Referencing famous philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, Neitzche and Heidegger, this class is self-reflective and clashes modern ideologies with classic existential thought.
One highlight of this course is that it leaves you with an everlasting mark of self-reflection. You learn to be critical of modern political implications such as global warming, Donald Trump and their social, moral and ethical consequences. I learned heavily about taking leaps of faith in order to find greatest meaning in life, and through this I have actually booked a trip to the Netherlands and got a piercing! These are all baby steps to living adventurously and meaningfully, but they have gained a foundation through this course.

Advice for students:
I would recommend this course to someone who is open to learning about very atheist thinkers, like Neitzche, but also very religious thinkers, like Kierkegaard. One piece of advice I can give is to fully emerge yourself in the readings and course material in order to get the greatest experience.
