I took this class at University of Dayton, not Sinclair but Dr. Obach is the man. He is very enthusiastic and made a boring topic interesting. He's the sweetest old man and always talks about his wife and softball. Class is easy if you read and pay attention. Very little tests and easier grader. Highly recommend him!

Don't take this Class if your are not catholic or Liberal because he tends to go off on big rants about his views. He also generates exams questions that can be true and false at the same time

Dr. Obach strives to help students learn where our ideas have come from and why they continue to impact and influence us and our world. He wants students to interact intellectually with the classic texts, and learn how to think clearly for themselves.

DO NOT take his class if you are an atheist, unless you want to argue with him constanly or bite your tongue constantly. He's a strongly-opinionated theist. And while he appreciates other persepctives, he feels strongly about some of his irrational beliefs. Made us memorize word-for-word a Martin luther king quote-ridiculous for a philosophy class!

Very Enthusiastic. Invested his interests in books and movies into lectures, although they were mostly irrelevant and lead to long, one-sided rambles. Invested his opinion into quizzes and exams too much. Class mostly consisted of guessing his jumbled thoughts and strong religious opinions rather than answering questions regarding the material.

Very judicious man. He's done everything. The material is hard to understand but he breaks it down so u can. A lot of quizes but it's mostly about the readings. He is overall a great professor and I reccomend him to all.

One of the best professors I've had. You have to respect his wealth of knowledge about life. The class isn't difficult and the final isn't bad at all! If you actually do what he wants you to do, you should be fine! People that complain about the material he assigns are usually the people who didn't do it...and it affected their grade.

Very interesting class. He makes us really change each others in conversations even when some get a bit defensive. He seems to be a great teacher but sometimes gets off track when students try to teach him. He allows the class to express their thoughts a little too much. Remember he is the teacher. u should give him the respect of his knowledge

He definately keeps the class interesting. He is quite a character, which helps. There is a lot of homework, and the final is pretty much impossible to study for, ost of it is about random anecdotes and quotes that he mentioned (but i didnt write down). However, i still managed to get an A in the class.

Was an interesting class, and I did enjoy most of it...except the final. The final was over things that weren't really discussed in depth as far as secondary thoughts of different philosophers...was dissappointed to still come out with a "B" when I felt it should have been an A due to topic knowledge i had. Was an overall easy "passing" course.

He is a great teacher. Even if you are not interested in taking a philosophy class, you will altleast be somewhat interested afterward. He makes the class very interesting, and uses great materials. There is a lot of homework, and analyzing, but as long as you come to class, you should have no problems. I would suggest this class to everyone.

Discussions can get intense if students are idiots and do not know what they're talking about. He has a lot of interesting things to say and uses awesome materials. I've purchased 4 books after taking his class. If you're interested in philosophy, you'll enjoy this class. If you're not, you should still come away with an A.

There is a lot of homework in this class, and a lot of analyzing things. But he is pretty easy, and he makes it interesting with the class discussions. I would recomend him!
