    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this class because it forces you to create new ways of thinking. It exercises your right to question just about anything. It makes you a stronger debater and person.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the class was the final. It was simply to define what a person is. And after your presentation people could ask questions and potentially deflate your argument. Maybe I liked it so much because I did very well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention. Ask questions. Study for everything. Have fun and be open to other perspectives.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was super easy but very thought provoking.

    Course highlights:

    The teacher was great and the material was fairly interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't worry about writing the essays. The first one is the only one the teacher checks. After that, he gives credit to everyone. Participate a lot. That's how you get extra credit.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Professor Morgan has acknowledged the fact that he teaches an introductory course, and as such, many of the students are not there to pursue philosophy degrees; however, this does not prevent him from putting in the maximum effort for the sake of his students. I have always believed that if a teacher is passionate about his subject, the students will respond in turn. As such, Professor Morgan has piqued my interest in philosophy, and has made a non-required course extremely enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Morgan has defined philosophy as the "love of wisdom," which is appropriate for this class. We have observed works by Plato to try and achieve an understanding of wisdom and virtue, and at the moment we are observing a book called Multiculturalism, which has observed the importance of dialogical lifestyles in establishing an individual's identity. In a world where cultures intermingle mundanely, this book is a good illustration of the benefits of such a world.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The greatest recommendation for this class is to read the material ahead of time. This class consists almost entirely of in-class discussions. As such, by reading ahead students can make greater, more substantial contributions to these discussions. Additionally, since the exams and quizzes are based entirely on the reading, students can be successful if they read and contribute thoroughly.
