    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would 100% recommend this class to anybody who wants to think deeply about what it means to view the world from a deeper, more contemplative perspective. If you want to be able to extract meaning and significance from even the most seemingly mundane of phenomena, then take this class.

    Course highlights:

    The section on happiness and Socrates was especially intriguing. Seeing something as seemingly ordinary and obvious as happiness being deconstructed and deeply questioned really makes you think. You learn a lot about yourself during this course due to the introspection that it catalyzes.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do the reading! And read it mindfully. These are not simplistic subjects or modes of thought. And you WILL discuss the topics (ALWAYS have quotes from the text on hand to help move the discussions along, the professor loves that).

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is very expansive in the topics it covers, but it covers all of them well. The class also makes you think more than most other classes will, and it is very rewarding because of that.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course is the teacher. The professor is fun and nice, but tough. The most important things learned are the basics of philosophy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main difficulty in this class is the actual in-class stuff. Do not stress to hard about the reading assignments, but understanding the material is important.
