Fun to listen to, hilarious guy, but not a great teacher. Just rambles on about stuff and grades essays VERY critically. I did get the grade I deserved, I was just looking forward to this class, and did not end up enjoying it very much

Worst philosophy professor possible. 100% lectures in what should be a discussion based class and frequently goes on completely unrelated tangents for long periods of time. He barely seems to know the philosophies he fails to teach. Also while his tests are easy his papers are absurd and he bases a massive amount of points on your sources.

AWEFUL! The class was boring and there was no discussion where it should've been a discussion based class. Just got lectured at. Also, went a huge tangents that were distracting. I hated the class and was just hoping to pass with what I could get. DONT TAKE.

Howard is a good guy in the classroom and is enjoyable to listen to. helps you understand the reading material well. When it comes to grading a paper though, I do not think he even read it in depth. In 6 days I received a grade I think I did a little better than. He is a tough grader but class is worth going to.

Some of the hardest papers I have ever had to write. The class is a GENED and he takes it too seriously. he doesnt explain his grading and is never available to meet. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Told us we would not receive a good grade on our papers if it was a topic he has seen before. Oh and the book you write on doesn't count as a reference in the paper you write...explain that to me. Changed the take home exam to in class half-way through the course. DO NOT TAKE HIM!!!

Horrible teacher! DO NOT TAKE HIM! If you have an abstract thought keep it to yourself. He basically called me a Nazi for using Hitler as an example then continued to insult me both in class n email said this direct quote in an email"I do not understand why you or anyone else for that matter would even turn in an inferior paper in the first place."

I really enjoyed the class. I was not all that interested in taking it at first, but he expanded my reading list to choices outside of this century. I found the books he chose to teach about interesting and he really gets into them. He really likes the material so he teaches it well. Only two papers and a take home quiz, but lots of reading.

Fun teacher to listen listen to. However, when it comes to taking grades and keeping track of class he is the worst teacher I have ever had. His attendance grading is shakey at best. I received A's on 4 out of the 5 biggest grades throughout the semester; however I received a B- due to attendance when missing no more than 2 classes.

Horrible teacher. Does not make anything clear about what he wants on papers. Talks about his life during class instead of the content. I learned absolutely nothing from his class and would never suggest him as a teacher.

I do not recommend this teacher at all. He was awful and unclear about what he wanted on every assignment. He gave me a 90% on one of my papers and said it really interested him in his comments and then changed it to a 70% without changing the comments. He's also never prepares you for tests and rambles about nothing. DONT TAKE HIM.

Sure his lectures are interesting but if you do not share his ideas he has biased grading. And for the tests, none of the information gone over in class is on it, making the lectures pointless to go to.

Terrible professor! He is very picky with grading and grades very low. He does not come prepared to class because he says that he has read the same books for the past 10 years. Also, if you do not have the same ideas as he does...your wrong. The class is called World of Ideas. So why cant we have our own ideas. Do not take this professor!

He really gave it to the class god. It was very pleasurable going to his class. He loved Rene Descartes and was very flattering. Would definitely take him agin.
