the cutest little old man ever! Okay, so althought the topic is interesting, he kinda drones and its very easy to zone out/sleep. However, you never have to go to class becasue he hands out notes, although u do learn if u go. And he coldnt be an easier or more lenient grader. Tests are essays, which means very easy to bull****. TAKE HIM!

This guy can be boring, and a lot of people sleep through class, but the topic is undeniably interesting to anyone with a brain and the class couldnt be easier. He hands out typed up notes everyday and if you miss a class (which i did a lot) he will willingly give you the old notes. Tests are all essay based, very simple. TAKE THIS CLASS!

Tests directly from notes. While the lectures are not usually exciting (and the room is always too hot making me sleepy) the discussion sections are interesting.

I did very well in this class. Prof. is lenient with late papers; believe me, I know. Not very entertaining, but the subject matter makes up for it. Makes it easy to take good notes. Tests directly from notes.

He teaches real philosophy without dumbing it down. Sure, his classes may not be the most entertaining, but if that's what you want, take some superficial Political sciences or econ classes.
