Always Do the Reading
Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
It's really interesting and it's a great way to get introduced to basic philosophical concepts. He talks about Descartes, Leibniz, and other household philosophical names. His slides are really thorough, so if you don't understand what he's saying, you can always go back to the slides.
The course went really in depth with the philosophy of mind. This is great, because the concepts he covers in this course are applicable in lots of other courses in Communications, Cognitive Science, and Psychology. I learned a lot about linguistics in terms of the mind, as well as the basic philosophical standpoints of major philosophers.

Advice for students:
Definitely look at the slides, and read the readings. His lectures were honestly not that helpful, but this was only because the supplementary material was so useful. Also, all the stuff you cover in this course is easily searchable on Google, and there are lots of resources available. Go to the midterm/final exam review classes! He always discusses what he's going to put on the exam IN DETAIL.
