Lecture is disorganized, unexciting, and really quite useless. The class is redeemed by great TAs, great readings, and fair, interesting assignments. Just go to discussion, and do the readings, and this is a great class.

As for the grading, it's pretty easy but beware of great discrepancies in difficulty among TAs.

Your grade in the classes is based on three writing assignments. For the first two, you had to answer three questions in 2 paragraphs and then write an additional essay. For the last writing assignment, it was two questions in two paragraphs and then an essay. The prompts aren't that hard, he basically just asks for your opinion on things or to give an example of a topic in one of the readings. Lectures are long but because they're two hours long, he gives a ten minute break after the first hour more or less. I stopped going after a while because my class was at 8 AM and they were recorded and put on CCLE so I could just go back and read them if I wanted. Also, he doesn't use a mic so its kind of hard to listen to him during lecture. Like other reviews say, your grade is based on who you have as a TA. Just fyi, Andrew is an amazing TA who is super helpful and good at explaining. Readins are are online pdf's. Theyre hard to understand sometimes, but you go over them a lot in discussion and theyre not too long. Overall, this is a pretty easy GE. No need to go to class, only discussion and just let your TA go over your essays before you turn it in and you're all set.

worst professor ever no joke do yourself a favor and do not enroll. he rants and pulls random examples that dont relate and cannot use midterm. i swear he is pulling random thoughts out of his ass to kill time because he doesnt have anything to say in a two hour lecture. yes the TA all grade differently so good luck!

AJ is like one of those messy philosophers you would see in the comics. I took Phil 153A with him, which is about normative ethics. It was easy because of AJ's A- grading policy and our sweet TA Amber. The reading assignments were excellent, but I didn't quite enjoy AJ's lecture. AJ's lecture is somehow dry, and he keeps talking for the entire 1 hour and 50 minutes. To be honest I found myself often became sleepy in his class. I don't know if this holds true for the phil 6 he teaches, but in general he is a nice professor.

Dense material but interesting if you can stay awake in lecture. Prof does daily handouts, but I never got to check if getting copies from missed days was possible. Friendly, funny, appreciates his class. Two papers, an A/A- only grading policy. I took him in the fall, he said he'll be teaching next in the spring, and I'm currently trying to find that class.

Julius is a total genius and I'm lucky that my friend recommended me to take his course; he's one of those rare long lost philosophers with excellent points
