This man knows what he's talking about, however he has succeeded in confusing all but one of the students in the class. The readings are boring, and so are the essay topics. He is a pretty good grader, but he is not a good professor.

he knows his stuff and gives lots of notes if you listen. what i liked about his class was there were no tests, just three papers and a final paper that was made up of 2 of the previous essays i already did. listen to what he says half the time, your ok

He knows his stuff. He's a hard paper grader (rather unfair too) although really nice. All he does is read from the text and gives his opinion. Most students leave early or fall asleep. Class paper averages is usually a B-. Im a phil minor and he's hard.

All essays, no tests. As hard as it is to stay awake, listen to what he says and take some notes and you'll do fine.

Not huge amount of reading, but some of it's pretty hard stuff. Kind of tough grader. Mostly lecture. Very helpful one on one. Knows what he's talking about, but you really do have to pay attention to "get it."

This was the class from hell. It was so boring! Nice guy, will help ,but just confuses you in class. Instead of making the reading easier for you he explains it in a way thet confuses you even more. Do not take this professor.

By far the worst professor I have had so far. He is a very harsh grader. He lets you re-write essays, but what is the point when he just rips it apart even more. Take his class if you need to catch up on your sleep.
