Steven Brown is amazing. He is so funny and entertaining. I legitimately enjoyed coming to class not to mention I learned so much. Because of this class, I want to minor in philosophy. He explains difficult concepts with ease and his class(es) will be stay with you and change your perspective on life. Also, his class is pretty easy.

Very easy class. Just go to class and take notes. You'll be fine on both the exams and quiz. Only 2 exams and not CUM, 10 quiz which is very easy. He's quite interesting and laugh every joke himself says...

So extremely offbeat but in a good way, and gives us essay questions/key terms ahead of time (for midterm), PLUS one full cheat sheet able to be used on all exams. Quizzes are open note but timed on Carmen.

He was by far on of the best professors I've ever had here. He was funny and kept all the material interesting. His teaching style kept me interested in the class and his ability to be personal in a large classroom was astounding.

There couldn't be a better philosophy teacher, hands down. This was a Saturday class, so things were a bit different than they might normally be, but daily quizzes not hard at all if you take notes and read. Papers and exams slightly harder. Amazing teacher. In 5 years at OSU, I learned more in this class than in any other. Take his class. Amazing.

Really was a fun teacher, I sat in the back all quarter, bad idea, I suggest you be actively engaged in the class. Definitely do the readings, his quizzes don't require reading (open notes) but your essays will suffer if you don't, trust me. Learn as much from him as you can!

Lectures were interesting and he was quite funny. Don't sit in the back, he mumbles quite a bit. No real book, but excerpts of philophers writings-MUST READ THESE. His tests were cake, so long as you filled out the study guide and went to class. Was very unbiased with views on religion; which is how it should be in this sort of class.

Could be a very dry class, Social/moral problems in US, but he was enthusiastic and engaging. I just remember him writing/drawing on the board figuring out the issues, calling on people and spinning around shouting Yes! with each point, often dawdling back and forth wrestling with the lesser "ehhhhh" kind of remarks trying to make them fit. Great!

Steven is a great teacher even though some of the material is rather confusing, and at times boring. We had daily quizzes over our reading, which actually helped to keep us current with the reading assingments. His exams are moderately easy and he gives you good study tips. Overall, he's really nice and nerdy funny!

The topics were more interesting than I thought they would be. Papers are pretty easy to write as long as you read and go to class for discussions. You could also submit drafts that he would grade and return for you to fix.

Very cool and funny guy. Made a very very very very boring class at least tolerable. Responds to emails pretty quickly and is an all around nice guy.
