    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The material was difficult to grasp at first and very complex, yet I pushed through and was eventually able to convey my reflection of how I interpreted the material by using some key concepts that the philosophers we studied focused on.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights were writing about my personal interpretation of the material using specific quotes from the reading assignments.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't give up. The material was chronologically connected so you definitely have to do the reading and assignments and not skip over anything. There are some philosophers that you will personally understand and others who concepts will seem ridiculous to you. Either way there is something to be said about it and something to learn, push through the material you disagree with because more than likely the next philosopher's works you study will be disputing the view of the last.
