Prof. Sugrue is a true rarity: not only a teacher of philosophy, but an actual philosopher! Being taught by him will put you head-and-shoulders above everyone you know intellectually if you do the work. The only caveat is that he is something of a peddler of his own somewhat idiosyncratic philosophy, and may seduce you into believing in it.

Here's the score. Dr Michael Sugrue is a force of intellectual nature. He introduced me to the Great Books and is personally responsible for changing the course of my life. His knowledge of the texts is unrivaled, his humour in class is witty and topical, and the man is an absolute joy. So that's about it. Questions about this? Trouble with this?

Hands down, Dr. Sugrue is the most brilliant man I have ever met. He is incredibly challenging, but if you are courageous take him -- Humanities is the most rewarding class at Ave you will never regret those sleepless months. :)

Great teacher but the workload is extreme. He knows a lot and expects students to learn a lot. Requires summer reading before class starts in September. Requires an entire big tough book every week, which is a killer. The handpicked students (permission of instructor only) are intense.

Walking into a class with Dr. Sugure is like agreeing to undertake a marathon. It is going to work you to exhaustion and make you happy, angry, upset, furious, and more proud than you have ever been on the other side but getting there will take everything you?ve got and more. There is no greater class at Ave than Dr. Sugrue's Humanities.

Dr. Sugrue shaped my understanding and knowledge of philosophy and history through the use of the great books by the great authors of all time. He was one of my favorite professors at Ave Maria: challenging, entertaining, interesting.

Dr. Michael Sugrue is a phenomenal teacher and Comp. politics was my favorite class. My only regret after leaving Ave was that I didn't take more classes with him. He is incredibly knowledgable and it shows in the classroom. In his class I was taught numerous skills that I am using today in the work world. Ave is very fortunate to have Dr. Sugrue!

Dr. Sugrue is an amazing professor! He makes his students really want to understand the material. He expects alot, which I think is really important. He instills a passion for learning that profoundly impacts the way you approach all of your classes. Great professor!

Knowing what you do not know is well known in philosophy, then having what you do not know explained to you without ruffling any feather's is Dr. Sugrue's amazing talent & gift!

Easily the Premier Talent of the faculty at AMU. Brings a Princeton/Columbia, ivy-league pedigree to little AMU. If you want to learn anything during your time there take every and any class this man teaches.

Easily the best teacher at AMU. I've taken over 10 classes with him and have loved every one. Have to want to work hard but its worth every minute. Definitely take both his Humanities classes.
