    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Philosophy is challenging to comprehend. Mr. Phillips definitely gives you an entire roadmap to what you read and never fails to elaborate if you do not understand something. His analogies help to make the material really clear.

    Course highlights:

    This class teaches you where our greatest life questions come from. Reading about Socrates and Plato is always a joy and this class stimulates your mind to the point where you begin to change your entire outlook on life. Philosophy makes you want to find the answers you have unknowingly been searching for since your birth.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you actually DO the reading. Yes, he goes over everything in class, but you'll have a much better understanding if you read before class and ask questions about what you did not understand. Also, do not be afraid to ask questions in class, either. I can guarantee that everyone is confused before he goes over the lesson.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course will open your mind to the things most people are afraid to accept. This course also helped me set up different notions about the purpose of life.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight for me was understanding arguments. Each argument is shaped like a T. Each side of the argument will clash in the top center of the T, explaining their views and arguing why the opposition is wrong. Eventually all arguments will accept and come down with an conclusion, which is the point that's at the bottom of the T.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in this class, you have to pay a lot of attention during class, avoid missing class, and be willing to forget what you already know and be open minded to what's presented.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great intro to philosophy and a good basis for upper level courses.

    Course highlights:

    Enjoyed learning about the fundamental differences between Plato and Aristotle.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Significant amount of reading, but if you keep up with reading the class is easy. Final paper is long and time consuming, but start early.
