Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This eight-week class is challenging, but intriguing. Ty Barnes is very passionate about philosophy and it shows through his lectures. The class is mainly lectures and quizzes, with occasional writing assignments to assess your knowledge of the readings. During the course of the class, you will learn the basic elements of philosophy, how to evaluate arguments, the history of philosophy, and much more. I recommend this class for those who have an interest in Philosophy and like to read.
The highlight of this course was Ty's sense of humor honestly. He knew how to make a lecture interesting and funny. I learned how to evaluate arguments, detect and identify logical fallacies, and argue effectively.

Advice for students:
If you feel you are struggling, go to Ty's office hours. He may come off as intimidating during class, but I promise he's actually quite nice. If he knows you're putting in the extra effort, then he'll appreciate it. Also, don't procrastinate.
