He is a really sweet professor. For the nature of philosophy, he does a really good job explaining the material throughly, and while sometimes he may get sidetracked it serves as more of a com medic relief than anything else. Would recommend him for Philosophy 101 but make sure you make yourself known to him.

This professor will seem great on the first day and I'm sure he is a great guy but he is a horrible professor. His emails are VERY condescending. The papers in class make it seem like it should be a 400 level class.

If you're taking class with Hogg..slap yourself. Although he does go through material, he is useless in helping students, as well as ridicules them for not having answers to his questions 110% correct in a frustratingly calm and smarmy manner. Surely was not one of my favorite professors at GV.

I took logic with Prof Hogg and I was sadly mistaking when I thought the class would be easy. It was extremely difficult if you didn't follow his guidelines...which I learned was a bad idea. He is an intelligent man and knows his stuff. He is also very understanding and helpful. I recommend him to anyone!

This prof is not good. He doesn't teach well at all. He is mean when you ask a question. He think everyone should already know everything before coming to class. Tests are super hard. I WOULD'NT take a class with this guy EVER.

He is the type of professor that will not help you at all unless you come to him with specific questions. He expects too much from his students as far as making students teach themselves THEN helping if/when students are confused about the material.

Based from GRCC. I recommend this professor to anyone interested in philosophy. He's very helpful, considerate with his students. From GRCC, his class was easy, but not a cake-walk. Expect your opinions to be argued against too. Some think he's condescending, maybe, But give him a chance. Don't be afraid to voice your opinion. NEED MORE SPACE...

I would not recommend taking him as a professor. I never felt comfortable speaking my opinion in class because if you did not agree with him, he would completely shoot down your ideas and he ALWAYS had to be right. I think he thinks too highly of himself. He is a very smart man, he just comes off as condescending.

I personally could not stand him as a professor. I thought he was extremely pompous and condescending. He appeared nice and caring, but I felt that he was secretly being rude but in a way that came across as nice. His grading was on a whim so you never knew what your grade was and he never put anything on blackboard. I would not not take him again.

Just such a confusing prof. He was all over the place for grading journals, gave us virtually no rubric for the final paper, and just told stories every class that didn't help us learn anything about reading Aristotle. He is also very condescending and is rude about things.

Dr. Hogg is such an incredible professor/ human being. He genuinely cares about his students and has such a kind heart. He is by far the best professor at GVSU. If you want to grow as a person- take his class!

I don't understand the hype for Professor Hogg. He's easily the most bias professor in the Philosophy department. He loses assignments and unless you agree with everything he says, you're bound to be annoyed during lecture. The class is for the simple-minded and religious.

The prof is a nice guy. The stuff he teaches aren't too bad. Exams are a bit hard. You really do have to study for this class in order to do well in it. 30 min a day for sure, cramming doesn't help much either. Half of the exam are hand written problems.

I have the utmost respect for Professor Hogg. He makes a very dry subject applicable to life. I can honestly say he has made me a better person and given me invaluable knowledge that would otherwise require years of life experience. If you want to just "get by" or not "think", take another section and do not waste this man's time.

The atmosphere of the class is really easygoing which I love. The content can be hard for some to understand but with the relaxed attitude and interesting stories he makes Aristotle seem like common sense. He is also super approachable which is good if you're not usually the type that is comfortable asking questions.

I have never learned more useful information in a class! He uses humorous, real life stories to explain a pretty boring topic of Aristotle's Ethics. I highly encourage you to take this class, because you will most likely use this information outside of GVSU every day. I know I will remember Prof Hogg's class for life!

Very well teaching professor. If you have the chance to take him, by all means do so. He knows what he is teaching and will explore in depth anything you don't find clear. He uses life stories and humor to keep the dry text of Aristotle fresh. Journals every other week and one paper is all you have to accomplish. Plus a few quizzes, but no biggie.
