Tyler Burge is legendary, and although this class was pretty heavy 'analytic philosophy,' I'm glad to say I could draw a small bucket from his deep well of knowledge.

Overall 5.0 Easiness 1.0 Workload 3.0 Clarity 5.0 Helpfulness 4.0

Most Helpful Review

I'm just being honest. Andrew Jewell is a natural born genius. He's too smart. I cannot ask him any questions because when he replies I have no idea what the you know what he is talking about. He is the by far the smartest philosophy professor I had at UCLA but I felt way too intimidated to ask him any questions because I am just a peasant in the land of his genius brain world. I don't know how smart he is outside of the classroom but the man is pure genius. His class is very well structured and he is also a good teacher. He teaches the most abstract in depth philosophical ideas I have ever covered. His class is extremely well structured and that is why I took him multiple times because I knew from the get go what I was in for. A midterm, a final, and sometimes one page writing assignments (pass/no pass). He also did online quizzes which, if you did the dense reading you would have gotten most of them right. You could probably take turns with classmates on the quizzes if you know any but I never did. You can definitely get an A in this class if you actually learn the material that he teaches you. I actually think he is one of the smartest people I know. I'm not here to kiss his butt but I got to give the man respect for the way he structures and teaches his course, despite his speech impediment. I honestly believe people will be writing papers about his work decades in the future. Genius. But not an easy A, and not ridiculously hard either. It's pretty simple. This is one of the few pure professors where if you actually learn the material you will be graded according to what you learned or appeared to have learned. Super down to earth and chill guy, but every time I would ask a question I would feel like he looked at me like a 4 year old asking what is 1 + 1.

Overall 5.0 Easiness 2.0 Workload 3.0 Clarity 5.0 Helpfulness 4.0

Most Helpful Review

It's so unfortunate this professor has such poor reviews. I took his class in the Fall and found it extremely engaging, and I left it feeling like I had a full grasp of the material he wanted us to know. The class was challenging and required a lot of work to be put into it. I, for most part excluding a few readings in the end, didn't do readings from the course reader because they were so well laid out by either Rescorla during lectures or the primary text. This class is an upper division class and was not easy. However, doing the primary readings before class every week set things up in a way that I felt well versed in the material.

3 papers, 2-3 pg, 3-4 pg, 4-5 pg, and a final consisting of material that was either necessary for the papers, plus a little extra from the beginning and end of the course. Course reader is expensive but it makes things far easier for the assignments. So, it's not necessary per se, but why make life harder if you can afford it? If you can't you can find it all online, which, if you do, print it off and bring it to class so you can keep up.

If you want to understand the subject, take this professor! If you want an easy A, look somewhere else!
