    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I am really enjoying this course. If you like to think about difficult issues and like good arguments based on strong, logical reasoning, then this is a great lower-level course for you to start with.

    Course highlights:

    This course really helped to strengthen my reasoning abilities and to better structure a good argument. For me, its been more of an introduction to philosophical reasoning than to philosophical theories, though it does give those (its a philosophy class after all)

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I recommend that you don't skip classes and be attentive at class. Missing classes and/or being inattentive is a really good way to fall behind in this class because we go through so much course content in class.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is an interesting class, it provides ethical perspective on controversial topics (meaning what I ought to do concerning different topics). The philosophical reasoning behind pro and con sides does open up conversations in ways that can cause people to understand their view/perspective. This course is aim to further your thinking process in a philosophical analytical way therefore, a lot of writing is required to get your points or reasons across.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned I can use understand how to address controversial topics or questions and philosophical reasoning to persuade people to understand my view on different topics. I have learned that conversations/interactions will stop if you force your opinions on anyone and do not take in account of other opinions from both the pro and the con side of different topics. Reasoning in a philosophical way helped my writing skills improve overall.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in the course, going to the teaching assistants' for further break down of subjects and to answer any questions you have on an assignment will help so much. The teaching assistants' are there to answer questions and help you understand the subject so visiting their office hours often is important.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it is quite interesting seeing how philosophers explain why we do things.

    Course highlights:

    I always looked forward to the discussion groups Dr.Braver assigned us to. It was there where we got to ask all the questions and get clarity on anything we didn't understand from the lectures. I learned a lot about how people can be motivated. Most people do things that will grant them the most happiness to them specifically, even if it might seem strange to others.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you take good notes during his lectures, which means try to make as many classes as you possibly make. Also make sure that you ask questions in the discussion group sessions.
