Would not recommend unless your major involves lots of article analysis. The classes are pretty easy, but he's terrible at explaining things, he can occasionally be humorous but will also blatantly insult you in class.

He's very intimidating. Only 1 Midterm (30%), 1 Essay (30%), and 1 Final (30%). And the other (10%) is Attendance/Participation. U only need to participate once and he will give you the full points. This class is very confusing at first, but you will understand it after many practices. I got a B

Easy class but you don't learn anything and it's boring and pointless. His grading system is flawed however if you stick it out the whole way I doubt he fails anyone I earned a B even though my points added up to a C so I guess I'd recommend him... just not first thing in the morning.

Horrible, horrible, horrible. He needs a reality check that students are trying to learn and they are not there for his venting session. Culturally insensitive and does not take into account that students are from all walks of life. Philosophy can be interesting but he does not make it so. Stay away!!

I should be the procrastinator king(I should be studying). With that said, I got an A. Last minute both wrote the paper(A) and studied for the final. So, yeah it's an easy A. A pointer: this is a logic class, so your opinion has to be followed by facts(many people fail to see this). I did more work in a 1 unit kin class than here.

This professor is not as bad as the other comments make him seem. If you expect to pass a class by not showing up, not participating, and not giving an effort. Then why are you in college? If you do try you will pass this class easily with an A. His teaching methods are simple.

Grading is simple, 30% each on a midterm, 4-5page paper, and final, and 10% class participation. Never homework. Class is way boring, although he attempts to try and make a joke here or there. If you attend enough class you'll get the sucject, but if you need extra help or tutoring he is not very helpful. "refer to the syllabus"

Learned my lesson read the comments he gave us a paper and did not really explain it and does not answer questions directly AVIOD the man- I now dread his class but if you do you only need the book after 2 months into the class and you do need it in class. Midterm was annoying, and he feels if we fail it is our fault and his teaching methods AVIOD

I would not recommend taking this class. The professor is rude and very sarcastic. He is not at all clear in his instructions and the students are left to do the best with what they have. There are many other options to fulfill the GE requirement. His class consists of 1 midterm-30%, 1 essay-30%, 1 final-30%, & participation-10%. Do not take!

STAY AWAY!!! He is not helpful. The class consists of midterm (30%), paper (30%), final(30%) and participation(10%). You will never get a perfect score on your paper because and I quote "you are not a philosopher therefore you dont deserve perfect score"

I definitely do not recommend taking this class. Your grade is based on 30% exam, 30% essay, 30% final and 10% participation. I only missed 1 question on the exam and he took 5 % off my entire grade because there were only 7 questions. He is unclear on what he wants for the essay and the final is everything we covered. DO NOT TAKE HIM.

If you are looking for a real philosophy class, this isn't it. If you're looking for an easy class, this is it. Throughout the year there is three main units he focuses on. Theyre pretty easy but it can get a bit boring. Khazaee is a kook but he's a pretty chill guy.

He was a super weird guy and kinda seemed wack sometimes but he's really intelligent. This class is super easy if you are even relatively good at English because that's basically all it covers. We makes some rude comments every now and then but can make funny little comments too. In general, a nice guy and a good class.

I would recommend this professor. His class is not that hard, and he didn't grade all that hard easy. He also tell you which problems will be on on the test and finals, so the only reason would be for you to fail would be if you just didn't even look at them. You do have a paper, but it is opinion based and you topic of your choice.

Khazee tells you how it is, and isn't afraid to argue with you in front of everyone. It's all with good intentions though! There's only a midterm, one essay, and a final. It's kind of difficult .. but you get used to it. At least there's no homework!

Very sarcastic and will openly challenge your ideas in class. Other than that the class was pretty easy the final was the most difficult part.

This professor is unclear in what he wants for the essay assignment. He is very sarcastic and is not afraid to give you harsh criticism during class. If you are sensitive and don't take criticism well, don't take his class. You only use the book the first month of class, but after that it's not mandatory.

Khazaee is an extremely good teacher. He focuses his class on 3 things arguments, article analyzation, & Language Functions. You have 1 test on the arguments which isn't that hard if U attend class & practice doing the arguments in the packet. A paper counts for the midterm. The final isn't too hard he will tell U what's on it.

It's a difficult course, but passable. Some of the things make absolutely no sense, but you get the hang of it after a while. The professor isn't too bad (actually kinda funny) but the class itself is kinda difficult.
