Professor Johnson is a genuine person. He knows the material extremely well, and though he grades a bit tough - he puts more weight on the second paper so people can adjust and write more of an analytic paper. In all honesty, if you’re just looking for an easy class - I wouldn’t recommend this class. That isn’t to say that it’s one of those ‘pain-in-the-ass’ misery-metaphysical hell-holes like Logical Positivism or something... But it does require one to apply themselves and be willing to care. But the material is so interesting and relevant - original Existestentialist doctrine - that it’s easy for one to apply themselves. For me - it didn’t really feel like ‘applying’ myself - I felt like I was going to class out of my own genuine voice and interest in the course. Kierkegaard is very interesting, and Professor Johnson made sure to present lectures with preparation, organization, (some humor here and there), and accuracy. It made for a great quarter.
