Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course is a survey class that generally delves into the ideology behind several philosophers by reading selected portions of their work. It is a great course to fill one of the philosophical inquiries requirements, while also learning a great deal.
This course focuses on giving students a general understanding and introduction of philosophy. The highlights of this course was being exposed to different philosophers each week such as Foucault, Nietzsche, and more! I learned the origins of punishment by Nietzsche as well as how to track the evolving purposes of certain societal practices. In addition, I learned that discipline is a socially constructed practice and its purpose is to control as many docile bodies as possible.

Advice for students:
I advise that anyone taking this course needs to read all the readings, and ask any questions as possible. If you are confused, ask the professor. He is more than willing to help.
