    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    It was a great course that taught me not only about the art of philosophical argument but also gave me analytical skills and the ability to peruse any given work with considerable objectivity.

    Course highlights:

    The major focus of the course was on argument reconstruction, which is the process of evaluating a given argument for validity and soundness, and taking a stand wither for or against it. I liked the discussions most, because everyone was able to express their own views, which in a subject like philosophy, were often wildly varied.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Play close attention to when the instructor teaches you how to evaluate an argument. Follow the essay structure closely and read up individually on how to write an argument reconstruction essay. Make sure you understand the argument before you start reconstructing it.
