Having a professor who is deeply rooted in religion is terrible when discussing ethics of major issues like abortion. He is completely biased and won't listen to any other opinions other than what the church has taught him to say. Stay away if you are intelligent to form your own opinions.

Dr Schwartz is a man of integrity, knowledge, and wisdom. He is the consummate professor & his courses are life-changing. Am grateful someone of his stature still teaches at URI. Unlike so many other Depts (e.g. Com Studies) who seem to employ former URI grads who are not prepared to teach & who are not well-read intellectuals, Phil & Dr.S are TOPS

PHL212 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I hated him. He keeps saying he will be unbiased but every single thing he says has his opinion on it. He says one thing and then a minute later does the opposite. A lot of unnecessary reading that creates a lot of extra work. His grading his ridiculous and won't change grades even when proven wrong. He wants to be helpful but only on his terms.

He is very excited about everything he teaches and truly loves the subject. He is really nice and understanding and so is the TA. There are homeworks due every class but they rarely take longer than about 15 to do. The tests aren't hard either as long as you go to class and go to Kiki's review sessions. I would definitely recommend it.

Must go to his office to talk about class topics.Too much work; 3-5 news articles per night to read, highlight and respond to, 1-2 chapters in a book per night to read and outline, on top of exams and take home quizzes. Too easily distracted. (cont'd)
