I was lucky enough to have McCarthy choose me as an advisee freshman year. His courses are still blowing my mind almost a decade later.

Outstanding. It's been 20 years and I still remember things he taught me, his drive and passion for the subject. Should be mandatory to take at least one class with him.

If you aren't really into philosophy, he might not be the greatest. But he's energetic and usually fun.

After having his class, I'm going for an "Ethics and Social and Political Philosophy" correlate. This guy's amazing.

AMAZING teacher, he loves what he teaches and his class is wonderfully engaging. The best time I had in class that semester. Challenging class though, but really worth it.
