Professor Floyd really wants every one of her students to understand the materials covered in class. This symbolic logic class might be hard to some but she explains things very clearly. She makes the class more like a seminar in which everyone is expressing their thoughts. I definitely recommend her class if you want an easy A and learn some logic

Professor Floyd is very knowledgeable in the subject, but isn't always the best at explaining it. Regardless, this is a very interesting class that you won't regret taking, even if you have absolutely no interest in philosophy, like me. Great elective.

I took logic with Floyd and you will learn a lot in her class. She is very clear and so knowledgeable, and she is always willing to meet with you to help or even to help you by email. Loved her. She makes you work for the grade but she is really fair.

Very knowledgeable.This class is logic,a little bit scientific deduction.But it is a humanity class so you need to memorize some terms.Light workload.Go to class to learn something, but read the book for the exam.Recommended to science people who don't want essays or readings. :)

Really easy class. She grades on a B- curve and drops the lowest two components of your grade. Direct problem sets. The two midterms were kind of hard, but the final was wicked easy. You can just sign into class and you're counted as being there. KNOW THE BOOK FOR EXAMS.

I fell in love with analytic philosophy and immediately, although I did not have the prerequisites, Professor Floyd was more than helpful, and always understanding of my struggles. She invites students to get involved, and her passion for the subject is inspiring. Can't wait to take her logic class next spring!

Professor Floyd's analytic philosophy seminar clarified material I previously struggled to understand. As other commenters have mentioned, her enthusiasm brings the material to life. She did an excellent job situating each philosopher and argument within a larger context, which I found crucial to understanding analytic philosophy.

Professor Floyd is a wonderful teacher of Wittgenstein. This material is notoriously difficult to teach, and her lectures clarify the text through example and by distinguishing it from other concepts students are familiar with. Importantly, Floyd makes Wittgenstein accessible without dumbing it down. I highly recommend Floyd's Wittgenstein seminar.
