Truly an excellent class. I enjoyed the lectures and discussion. The reading load was heavy and time consuming, but manageable (Prof. Blakely was flexible about making changes to the syllabus as well), and above all interesting. It is good to have a professor who is passionate about what they …more teach. It was also a class with lots of applications. less

He is a new prof, but one of the best in the poli sci dept. I found his class challenging, but if you do the reading, you'll be fine. Not an easy grader, but he's very fair, and you'll for sure become a better analytical writer. I agree with everything said above as well (esp flexibility with …more office hours!!!), and I highly recommend him! less

Professor Blakely is an excellent lecturer, I understand all the theories and ideas he tries to explain in class. However, he is a VERY harsh grader. if you thought you were pretty good at writing essays, think again. His prompts are easy to understand but very difficult to answer. You need to be …more very logical and philosophical to take this class. less

I love Blakely he is an absolute awesome professor and person. Unfortunately as a professor and a Seminar he is way too tough. He was very helpful but didn't have a ton of office hours. Get Ready to read and if you don't go to class good luck understanding.

Very tough class. The theories are not hard to understand and are actually very interesting. No tests, but your entire grade depends on 4 essays. The essay prompts are easy to understand, but impossible to answer. Lots of participation debate in class so if you're not the eloquent type, you pretty …more much live in the shadow. Very harsh grader. less

Pepperdine is lucky to have snagged Blakely. He's great and you learn so much. Structures discussion to help you think through your opinions. He's very intellectual, but don't let it get to you. Always willing to help you out. Tests are challenging, but won't be too bad if you do all the readings …more (cannot stress enough) and DO NOT CRAM. less

Lecture puts reading into perspective of larger ideologies. Hard to stay motivated to do the readings, though, since the lectures cover all the readings.

If you have space & time to take one of Dr. Blakely's polysci/philosophy courses & are genuinely interested in reading and learning more about what some of history's greatest thinkers wrote about, enroll! He's Incredibly knowledgable, Lectures are 100% worthwhile to attend. 1 hr lect., 1hr …more discussion, helpful in developing critical thinking skills. less

Blakely is an amazingly knowledgeable professor, and he does a great job at clearly and aggressively diving into texts. Some of the concepts are difficult to grasp, but if you do the readings, it will definitely be worth your time.

Dr. Blakely's class was a tough one, and he does not grade easily. That being said, he is one of the best professors I have ever had. He is a brilliant man but also truly values his students' ideas and encourages dialogue. His classes are half lecture and half discussion, and all of his exams are …more essays based on assigned readings. No quizzes! less
