Great professor who loves philosophy. His tests are all take home and you'll do great on them if you copy all the notes. His lectures are fairly interesting. He uses examples from him life which is sometimes humorous. Overall the class is enjoyable.

Awesome Professor, makes you think like a philosopher first which allows you to see faults in arguments. Such a good member of Wagner's faculty

Great guy, easy class. Tests are take home. Just copy down everything he says in class, and regurgitate it on the take home test. Easy A if you take notes. Not a lot of reading b/c he tells you everything you need to know.

Lots of detailed notes, but if you copy his notes down you will do well in the class. Very good at explaining the readings so you really don't have to do any reading on your own

He's a great guy who cares about his students. His class can be boring at times and yes like everyone else said you have to take gooood notes! He gives 3 tests that are taken straight out of the notes and a final. He's pretty funny and an interesting guy a little easier on girls, but w/e. I ended up getting an A- in his class. Definitely take it

AMAZING! I am majoring because of him. If you go to class and take notes you will do fine, tests are take home and word for word from the notes. He can be really funny if you listen to him too. Class can be dry and long at times but all around great class.

Very nice man. Take good notes copy them stright onto the take home tests and you should do fine. Extreamly knowledgable he knows his stuff and you can tell hes one of those teachers that is really passionate about his field. I loved him as person and actually took a lot out of his class. I dont recommend missing classes, notes are important!

If there is a prof on campus who will leave you wanting to be a philospher, it's this guy. His understsnding of the material is unbelievable. His notes may be messy, but his ideas are incredible.

He is a very nice man. It isn't a hard class if you take really good notes and use them on his take home exams. He is a generous grader. Final exam is the only hard since its in class. just memorize notes, not so bad class I didnt work much for an A-

Very nice professor, always willing to talk and help out when he can. Handwriting is messy, though, so don't be afraid to ask him to repeat himself. You should do fine as long as you take enough notes and repeat whatever was discussed in class. All tests other than final are take-home. Easy A if you know what you're doing.

Seriously, just make him read his notes after he's written on the board (terrible handwriting), attempt to answer questions once in a while, maybe read the material (a sentence or two) while he's taking role, then copy all of your notes on the take home and you're completely golden with a nice big A
