absolutely boring and full of nonsense. One of those classes that ruins the wonders philosophy brings. Sad students have a bad first experience because of the teacher and his content.

No room for critical thinking in this class! Do not try to impress him with your own analysis, just say what he wants to hear or you'll get bad grades and he'll straight out laugh at you in an unrespectful way if you do not have his opinion. My advice, Hang on and do what he wants and do your readings...

BORING. Felt like book club, nothing to do with developing your own ideas and critical judgement, which is what philosophy is all about. Worst class ever, disrespectful teacher. If you don't give him the answer HE wants to hear, you'll get the boot and the low grades that come with it. GOOD LUCK.

Teacher is rude and will not let students develop their own ideas. Short temper, will not hesitate to yell or kick students out.

For this class, you really have to do the readings or else you're screwed. Teacher comes off as rude and doesn't really want to discuss new ideas.. he just wants us to figure out what he thinks. Didn't enjoy his class overall. By doing the readings and listening to instructions, ended up with an 85 (pretty much as high as he gives). If you have him, talk at least twice a week to have good grades for oral competency.

If you get easily insulted, don't take him, he laughs in people faces and makes fun of them, not because of jokes, he tries to ridiculize people. All you have to do is read

He is not much clear about what exactly he wants from his students. We do not learn concrete nor general philosophy concepts, we rather read literature and discuss it, which sometimes, makes no sense ...

Must really understand texts well to get 85% . Very welcoming in his office and asks thought provoking questions in office. Seminar classes are relax. If you tend to talk without seriously thinking, you will not like him.

Lectures are terrible. Wants you to speak in class, but there's nothing interesting to say. The whole course is ALL about making a summary of what you read (got me a very good grade). Weird teacher...
