    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    While taking this course, I was exposed to many different theories and concepts of philosophy, helping me shape my own views of what I believe to be the best way to live a fulfilled life.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about theories such as Hedonism, Utilitarianism, and Ethical Egoism. In this class we also touched on the ideas of how religion and tradition play a huge rule in morality.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this class, you must stay on top of your reading. Falling behind in chapters recommended by the professor will make class lectures and discussions difficult to participate in.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Mr. Streeter was a very enthusiastic person while teaching. However there were times he was too enthusiastic but in the end you really learned this central idea of ethics. He made you question everything you thought about what you believe or thought you believed. This may sound bad but it actually very helpful. There are plenty of times you have believed in something but did not know why, he helps you work through it by testing your own ability to explain what you have going on. Sometimes it could get frustrating but you really see through it. The books also help you understand life too. The life we live is not as simple as you believe it is and the books by Russ Shafer-Landau really help you question what life is. Overall the class is great.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that everything is not simple, you should question till you really understand what is happening. You should not take anyone's word for anything anymore, believe what is best for you because happiness is always the key to living the best life possible. Once your life is over it is not, you leave behind a legacy which is molded by your hands and life choices. Again the most important thing is question everything, even the obvious.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    When he tells you to read, you should read if you do not understand try asking yourself some of the questions at the end of the chapter. If you still are completely lost he will go over the readings in class. Really pay attention to the books. They seem boring but they are really very interesting and help you see the world for what it is.
