Dr. Robinson is probably one of the more unusual philosophy profs you will encounter at IUPUI. Unlike most academic philosophers, he is not an atheist or materialist, and believes that religion merits a certain degree of respect. He is also perhaps the only prof who will spend significant time on …more Eastern philosophy. less

Professor was kind of crazy and made a lot of dirty comments in class which made it awkward. Only two papers due, no attendance or quizes which made it easy. The first was a six page and the second was a 12 page (an additional six to the already first six pages written)

Excellent prof, with a deep knowledge of Chinese philosophy, especially Buddhism. He somehow manages to be both highly irreverent and very sincere during lectures. Two take-home 6 page essay exams and a 15-20 page paper are required. Grading seems neither too easy nor too hard. He always says, …more "Your mental health is more important than your GPA." less

Truly an enjoyable professor. If you are willing to open your mind to new ideas, this is the class for you. He brings lots of colorful stories to each class and is willing to be very honest about what he knows/does not know.

Professor is competent in the subject he teaches. He would be an enjoyable teacher if he didn't habitually use sexual situations as examples when explaining an ethical concept. The class only requires journals for each class meeting, and 2 papers. This was a fairly easy class, but I would not take …more a class with this professor again. less

If you want an easy A, take this class. If you are easily disturbed by comments that may or may not offend you, don't take it. The guy is very sporadic and says his mind, doesn't care about you with respect to your values, but does care about your grade. So basically ~~ As as person he doesn't care …more about you, as a student he wants you with that A. less

Professor Robinson was a fairly decent instructor, it is very easy to achieve an A if you follow his instructions. He is left of center politically speaking and will make this known to you throughout your discussion of ethical issues by questioning the conservative stances and going easy on more …more liberal stances. Recommended if you must take Ethics. less

Dr. Robinson gives a interesting class. Teaching by lecturing mostly with stories about the lives of philosophers discussed and discussion on the concepts. He has a very deep knowledge about Chinese/Native American philosophy/culture and pairs that with crass humor/Star Trek/Star Wars. Some may get …more offended, but I found him hilarious. less
