    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would probably not recommend this class if you do not like history but if you are interested in it, it is a somewhat interesting class about the founders of philosophy. It gets a little boring hearing the life story of tons of philosophers and trying to memorize it, but it was not too difficult.

    Course highlights:

    Professor Straka kept the material as interesting as possible and tried to make it relatable. Basically the coursework is learning about different thought processes and trying to analyze what each philosopher was talking about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Too succeed in the course you mostly just need to read the handouts that he gives you and pay attention in class. There is not much homework so the main thing to be prepared for is the tests which are essay based.
