After numerous emails, calls, conversations with his assistant, and numerous submissions, three years later I don't have a grade on a paper. Terrible teacher. I had to pay for another class so I could grauate on time.

I had a completely different experience with forster than the one below. He's very helpful and loves it when students go to his office hours. He also slightly resembles a slightly older James Bond.

Brilliant. Sometimes he gets side-tracked though, so you have to go to office hours to get some info that he left out that is pertinent to the paper. Very well versed in Greek and knows classics very very well

His lectures brim with brilliant insights and his encyclopedia-like knowledge of Homer and Plato is jaw-dropping. Learned more in his class than I did during all four years of high school. Very soft-spoken, lectures peppered with dry British humor. Sometimes hard to hear. Eager to help students.

His lectures were impeccable and inspirational. It seemed that every class brought a new revelation to a logical, eager first-year. The reading assignment were not taxing, and the paper topics were essentially rehashing of class lectures, but it was still far better than random student discussion.

Arrogent, gets side tracked too much. If you want to learn the info you have to go to office hours. He didn't seem like he wanted to be teaching HUM in the first place.

Obsessed with Johann Gottfried von Herder relative to the general philosophy community. Made us buy a $45 Herder book which he edited.
