As a history of arts teacher (Philosophy), he was a pretty good teacher. 1 class out of 2 I was dead laughing at his funny remarks. He swears a lot in french but TBH that just adds to the fun of the class. He seems strict at first but later you can see he's actually a nice teacher. Oh, and you're not done hearing about "Bob LaMotte". Joke with him and he'll love you.
Prepare to work if you get him in one of your classes. As a whole, I do recommend Stephane as a philosophy teacher but if you do get him, be prepared to memorize numerous concepts about stuff that have no link with philosophy. Still, his grading is pretty fair, so this does show good knowledge/work equivalency, resulting in an overall good time spent learning interesting historical and philosophical concepts in his class.
Funniest teacher ever
Goes off on tangents pretty consistently and it sometimes seems like he's trying to convince us that his opinion is the only one worth considering. Although these things made me not really like him personally, his classes are easy to get good grades in if you just pay attention. Keeps class interesting, at least, and knows his stuff.
He is a character. Very funny guy, could have his own tv show he really is something. He knows his stuff and isn't afraid to use it upon students to see if they have done their readings. Not afraid to make examples out of people. But hey in the end was an interesting class for philosophy after all, kept us on our toes.
Very entertaining class, if you are not offended by his jokes you will really enjoy it. He is not too hard, taking note of things he says can very VERY useful for essays. He provides a fair outline of what he wants, but if you do not provide something, then marks will go down. One thing he needs to work on IMO is to stay on track of what he says: sometimes he just goes off on an entertaining comment which makes you miss off the focal point of his course. Last thing: be prepared for his final.
He's a very funny character, he talks mostly about his personal life but he has a lot of knowledge. Even if you don't really do philo in class you'll succeed well if you say you're opinion and if you have read the books.
I loved my classes with StÃ©phane. His topics were interesting and he was always very entertaining. It was easy to get good marks, you just had to do the lectures before coming to class. Only downside
I think he really goes off on random subjects often and he is not easy on the grades either, at least in lecture class. He doesn't care about his students and doesnt bother to explain the assignments
He has a lack of objectivity, but he is really entertaining.
Superb. even though somtimes he is a bit rude it is not to be mean he does it to lighten the mood.
He's a great teacher but his reading are pretty intense. He's very dynamic, funny and interesting and does not always stick to the class content, which is nice.
Passionated about what he's doing. Hard to follow tough, you really have to pay attention. Hilarious way of switching from one language to another all the time.
He's a great teacher! He's funny and logical. His courses are not hard if you read and think.
ONly thig about him is that he thinks he is so smart but he really isn't. Too much of htis guy is not a good thing because he is so rude sometimes.
Listen to what he says and take notes. Otherwise, you're a sinking ship waiting to happen.
His courses are hard, and you have to make the reading, but if you are willing to work hard, this teacher is very stimulating
humm.. i'd say he isn't really hard if you read all the texts but well not particularly interesting either...who likes philosophy anyway...
Readings are too hard. He only likes the smart ones.
Strict, not easy; but rewards good work and makes interesting discussions :-).
really good teacher! but watch out for the final exam...
he gets his point across but in a rude and obnixious way!
He's a good teacher.. though and demanding. Never forget your wordcount!!!!
Anyone who thinks this guy is smart is not very smart.
