    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy is a very hard subject to grasp. Nathan takes teaching this class to another level. He makes us talk, he makes us debate, he makes us participate in the readings. Nobody ridicules opinions and the ability to debate with our own opinions helped me understand the lessons being taught. Some of the hardest philosophers were very easy to understand due to his explanations and he relating it to something in our lives or global events.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the class was actually being used as a volunteer when learning about Levinas. The idea with Levinas philosophy is don't kill me. It is basically him stating that once you judge someone ,good or bad, you kill them. I had to stand up in the front of the room and once up there Nathan looked at the class and said go. At that point everyone was saying the first thing that came into their mind about me. I couldn't defend myself. None of it was bad but the idea and the visual behind the philosophy was great.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't be closed minded, open up your mind to the idea of all different forms of philosophy. Debate with other students and share your opinions.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would not recommend. Philosophy is already a challenging subject to understand and he just makes it worse.

    Course highlights:

    You do learn because you have to do alot of your own research on subjects.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Dont take it. If you do, buy the book and do assignments while reading material.
