He is very charming and humorous. He exemplifies a passion for teaching and his energy is contagious. One of a kind and you should take his class to have the experience. Experience points all the way. Hard marker, but he makes up for it in all other ways. Take his class and stick through with him until he grows on you as an inspirational person!

By far one of the BEST profs are Ryerson! I am yet to find a professor that is so incredibly intelligent and engaging. Definitely knows his material. I've taken 2 classes with him and it has been life changing.

As overused as it is, i wish universities were filled with professors such as Cunningham. What a great person to listen to and be taught by. No only did he teach the material at hand, but he always went beyond the surface and tried to open up our minds to different things. I learned a lot more than philosophy in his class. There's no one like him.

Amazing teaching technique, and very interesting and inspiring approach to the subject. He has a high sense of humour and his energy and passion for teaching are incredible. I really loved his classes and was looking forward to them every week.

James is my fav! I've taken 2 of his courses and am changing my electives so that they are all for his classes!! He is such a great teacher and person and isnt afraid to speak his mind which makes him so amazing! He'll make fun of you openly but he does it to everybody so don't take offence!! One day in his class and you'll be in love!

PHL2 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Hilarious prof, I had never taken a philosophy course before but this was literally my favourite course in my university career so far. Very passionate about what he teaches, it's almost impossible not to listen to him, and he loves answering your questions. Also he's constantly making jokes (about either the material or the students)

PHL356 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very entertaining. He's hilarious and very nice to students. However there is no structure to the class however. He always went off topic during lectures. I wasn't very keen on his teaching style. But if you prefer taking notes without powerpoint slides/guidelines, then he's the prof for you.

PHL999 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Have been in several of James' classes. He is one of the best. He inspires his students to learn through the enthusiasm and passion he exhibits in class. His lectures must be attended but they are great experiences. Condenses material, explains it clearly, and makes it relevant to the students. He is not easy. He is fair. A's are achievable.

Had a rollercoaster, first liked, then really annoyed felt patronizing, then lukewarm, then really enjoyed, by the end Cunningham won over. At first his lecture's seemed unclear, but there is method to his madness and his antics became enjoyable and even welcome.

THE BEST TEACHER I HAVE EVER HAD! I have already taken six courses with him, and I plan to take as many as humanly possible. Thanks to Cunningham, I have chosen to major in Philosophy.
