    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a must for everyone. Philosophy can be tricky but the key is to really ask questions and know that asking the question is more important than the answer itself -if there's any answer and most of the time when there is one, it is not either black or white but rather somewhere in the middle. I believe that we all have this potential that can only be unleashed by thinking, that is what philosophy is all about. It's also very interesting how holistic it is, it can go from politics to religion and even medicine. It really is a course that will change your life and the way you see things and will expand "your options", think of something like The Matrix series combined with the ancient Greece and Rome. This class is only the intro, so you'll get a taste of all the main variations and theories that have came up and that deal with our everyday lives.

    Course highlights:

    It is all about perspective and things can not be what they seem, but they can be how you like them. I know it sounds like I'm playing mind tricks or something but this is IT, it really is. The work load is not bad, the book is not expensive and our professor was not pretentious or "hard", just a regular guy, in fact he even gave us extra points whenever most people didn't attend and only a hand full of us were there. Our homework was typically just a reading of no more than 10 pages and our exams were only 2 pages at the most. No term paper or essays at all. It was all about simply paying attention to the lectures.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enjoy it! Don't over think stuff and realize that the answer are questions. There really is no end to philosophy or an exact definition, so don't over think it.

    I learned about different philosophers, but a lot of the work is comparing two of their different ideas.

    3-5 hours

    Know the views of the philosophers as you will have to compare them to each other
