    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for a challenge or for someone who wants to pursue a degree involving philosophy. Professor Harrison really pushes you as a student to think, use your mind, and look at the world differently.

    Course highlights:

    So far I have gained insight into the way people think and act the way they do. It is a very involved class that will make you think about the way you live your life and those around you.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all the work he tells you too, it's actually meant to help you do well in the class. Also, participate, answer his questions. The more you respond or answer, the easier the information will come to mind and the longer it stays there.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course and this professor. Prof. Harrison used all types of sources and materials to further engage us in the material/ideas. Also class participation is a must, it will help with comprehension of the readings and Prof. Harrison does not like talking to the walls.

    Course highlights:

    I learned so much about so many different philosophers. From Socrates to Sartre to Frye, every single philosopher we covered I enjoyed learning about their ideology. I would say the highlights of the course were: the in depth discussions we had on the Allegory of the Cave (Plato) and how it was portrayed in the movie The Matrix, and the game we played as a review for our first "strong quiz." Out of the 3 classes that I have taken this summer, although this was the shortest I enjoyed it the most. I really am thinking about taking this same instructor in the fall for Ethics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always always always do the readings prior to class. Also attendance is very important. Even if you do the readings, going to class to iron out the information is necessary. During class it is best to be fully engaged and take minimal notes than writing down everything verbatim. Being able to fully understand an idea and to write only a sentence or two will be more beneficial than writing down everything that is said only to not grasp any of it. And finally last but not least, never underestimate the power of group discussions/reviews.
