Phil 020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

This is class is pretty boring to say the least. Professor Lewis is drags on a bit and goes into the extended philosophical metaphors. Your garde is completely dependent on your TA, except for the final.

Intro Phil Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Recommend taking Lewis for the philosophy requirement. Don't really need to attend lectures. Work load is light. Weekly short assignments that aren't time consuming at all, one 1200 word paper, and a multiple choice final that is straight off the lecture notes he posts online. Easy A/A- with little effort.

Phil020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Lecture style class was very straightforward with information. He makes it clear. The short assignments were not very time consuming and discussions were really interesting and fun (although it depends on who the TA is). My major problem was the final was a multiple choice test and all previous assignments were short writings and paper.

PHIL020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Lewis is really boring and doesn't clarify. Final was a multiple choice straight from the notes, but midterm was paper graded by TA. Completely subjective. Don't have to show up to class but your TA controls 2/3 of your grade so although recitation isn't helpful in understanding, it helps your grade. Weekly questions don't take much effort.

Phil020 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

He's nice but real boring. He takes a really long time to go through a small amount of material and the 100+ student lecture style minimizes student involvement. Mandatory discussion sections are kind of interesting but I couldn't handle it at 9 am. On the bright side, the short assignments and final are curved so it isn't the hardest class.
