Phil 198 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Great Professor! Her midterm and final are kind of hard but if you study it is very straightforward. She is very passionate about philosophy and it definitely transcends into her teaching. Once a week night class was worth it.

She is not a very good teacher...However, if your goal is to memorize what she writes on the board, and NOT learn, then take her.

Philosophy 160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I enrolled in her class only after reading the comments here. She is not really that easy. The midterm was fine (memorizing word per word of her notes). But the final exam is impossible. Had to memorize for 22 pages of notes word per word. If you're a memorizer, take her. If not, you're doomed. Besides that, her hw is easy (1 outline/reading).

PHIL160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Really easy teacher, but also really good! She really breaks down the material in class and makes it easy to understand. Only a midterm, final, and 1 paper along with minimal homework. Her 2 tests are based EXACTLY off of class notes and if you memorize them you'll get an A on everything. Overall awesome, take her for sure if you can.

Philosophy itself is in a different language but Taheri breaks it down and makes it understandable. MEMORIZE the notes WORD FOR WORD for tests and you'll be fine. Best part of the class - she lets you out 30 minutes early!!

Prof. Taheri is one of the greatest philosophy teachers. She is really enthusiastic in all of her lectures and makes you want to learn more. Her tests are alright, you have to memorize all of her notes in order to get an A but it is worth it in the end. She really wants you to do well and this is a core phil 160 that must be taken!

Make her your first choice for philosophy professor! She makes the topic interesting. Also, she is the most understanding professor. There is a fair amount of reading, but she doesn't really read your summary. There is a research paper on a philosopher, but if you don't put it off, you'll do fine. TAKE HER!

PHIL160 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Definitely the easiest PHIL 160 class. Lets you out at least 30 min before class is over. Just cram for midterm and final. Project is a joke. Attendance is mandatory. Writes word for word notes on the board every class which gets very tedious. Overall an easy A is you study.

Great teacher, really nice. Notes are PERFECTLY outlined for you in class, there's no reason not to do well unless you don't study. Very approachable--one of the nicest teachers here. I'd recommend her to anyone, especially if you're NOT interested in philosophy (I'm not a fan but loved her class)

Don't bother buying the books. You can find all the readings on the internet. You get full credit on homework as long as you complete it. She has really clear and precise notes. Lets you out almost an hour early every class. Tests are alot of info, basically memorize all the notes she gives and you should be fine. She is really nice and gorgeous.

Nice. However, English is her second language which makes her explanations of philosophy more confusing than they already are. One paper...follow outline perfectly and you'll get a good grade. Hard midterm and harder final. She's really nice and understanding.

She is very nice and the outlines are super easy. Most of the reading you can find on sparknotes. 1 paper and two tests (midterm and final). Study real hard for those cause she covers everything with them. Otherwise, kind of a boring class, all you do is take notes, but she is nice and easy to understand.
