phil 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A+
"Skip class? You won't pass." "Participation matters" "Get ready to read"

Funniest professor I've ever had! Get ready to laugh! You need all the books or else you won't do too great on the exams, but the books are super cheap, none of the are more than $12. Also adds 4 points to your final grade if you come to every class. GREAT professor and a philosophy genius.

PHIL202 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A-

Such an awesome professor for a number of reasons, but mostly because he absolutely loves everything he's teaching and he gets so into it. He loves philosophy so much that he gives you the opportunity to call on the weekends and ask questions because there's literally nothing else he'd rather be doing than teaching philosophy. Best professor. Ever.

CRIT THINKING Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

I took Dr. Fred Seddon's Critical Thinking 101 class in Altoon back in '03 or '04, and graduated in spring 2008. I cannot tell you how much this man has influenced so many things in my life, and in my professional IT career. I don't remember many professors names, but his name is burned in my head as a key-influencer. Thank you so much, Doc!

PHIL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The class is so-so. If you need a easy gen ed, go ahead and take this class but don't study with Seddon if you actually enjoy philosophy, his classes on it are pretty shallow in nature and he's a bit arrogant, prepare to have one or more rude comments flung at you if you put yourself out there at all. Just be quiet and take the tests.

He is a great teacher. He absolutely hilarious and has a mouth like sailor. He answers any and all questions soundly and in-depth. There are a few cheap books, but he walks you threw them. Easy A if you try even remotely.

Phil203 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

Hes a great professor really knows his stuff. 3 Test true false which are pretty hard its really confusing but if you get high 70s on all of the tests and ace the final with an 86 and attend every class youll get a B+ which I thought was very good for this class. Take notes and GO to every class you get 4 bonus points added to your final grade !

Defiantly take a course with this teacher! He is awesome and extremely entertaining. He makes class very fun! He never gives homework, attendance is up to you, but if you have perfect attendance you get bonus points. If you go to the majority of the classes, take notes, and study a little the test will be easy- all mult. choice. I loved his class!

He acts crazy and gives you a good laugh. Talks about everything in class and answers any questions. Tests are all true and false questions. You read out of the text book every class and never have homework.

He's funny and easy-going. However, his test are deceptively hard; if you dont like studying you probably wont pass his class.

Phil 110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Seddon is crazy, I never knew what he was gonna say next and has some funny analogies to explain the material. Tests are T/F but are kind of tough. If possible borrow the books from a library or something to save money because there are a bunch of them and there's no use for them after the class.

PHIL 10 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

You'll just read from the book in class...which I think isn't that helpful considering some people at the college level still can't read very well. You've got to put in a lot of study time per test because he makes them difficult. Not that great of GH, I suggest taking something else.

PHIL 105 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: N/A Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Seddon is a funny guy. During class you just read from the book, but its good to attend because he explains everything as he goes. The tests are mainly T/F, which is hard if you don't know what you're talking about. If you show up, you should have no problem getting an A. Gives extra credit for perfect attendance too. Good for an easy GH.

I love going to Dr. Seddon's class because you never know what will come out of his mouth, usually something crass and hilarious. He teaches logic very well, those who do not understand the subject material have their own limited capacities or attention spans to blame.
