    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would only recommend this course to those who are very deep thinkers and have the patience to read and analyze things, because thus course can get very confusing. You also have to have an open mind.

    Course highlights:

    Different perspectives on knowledge and beliefs.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Reread all the documents and rewatch the lectures

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. D'Amico was an amazing professor because he was always easy to communicate with and was always willing to offer help to students who were confused. I also liked Dr. D'Amico's style of teaching. He made a big lecture hall seem smaller and always kept me focused.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot of philosophical theories that I still like to bring up sometimes because I thought they were so fascinating. I also think the TA's were very helpful in this course. Because the exams are administered as take-home essays, it was very helpful having another set of eyes to look over what I wrote.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise them to definitely not procrastinate on the essays and to go to every class. I would also encourage them to get someone to revise their essays before they turn them in because they are a very large percent of the overall grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I think that this class was significantly difficult, but if you like being challenged intellectually, this class may be for you. Personally, this class wasn't my favorite because of all the writing involved, as well as the difficult subject matter.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were seeing different philosophers perspectives on topics such as knowledge, free will, and morality. The readings were hard to understand a lot of the time, but the professor took time to really explain what the philosophers were trying to convey, which was extremely helpful when writing the essays.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you want to take this course you should have a genuine interest in philosophy, otherwise you might end up hating or dropping it because it isn't an easy class, by any means. Also, make time for your essays because they require some thinking and critical analysis.
