Great Professor. From the first lecture, I knew that Professor Pagden was a very effective at getting the material across to the students. Political theory was never my favorite aspect of study, but after taking Pagden's class, I found myself seeing the field from a whole new perspective. In order to do well in this class, show up. Thats it. If you show up and listen to Professor Pagden break down complex philosophical discourse, then you will be more than prepared to explain these theories when it comes time for the midterm and the final paper. Overall a great class and I highly recommend you take it if you are considering this class.

meh.

dense, boring, and disorganized lecture style.

readings were insanely difficult, and in class there was no real clarification.

Professor Pagden is absolutely brilliant! I had initial qualms about taking this class, and sitting through the first lecture did not really help at all because he is so smart and talks a little too fast sometimes, that it just seems like his mind is all over the place!

But I'm glad that I decided to stick with this class-it was very interesting. The class is graded according to 2 papers- and he gives you several prompts for each paper topic that it's just very hard not to get an A in this class. Just pick one that suits you best!

I think that one of the ngatives of this course was the reading-it was a little difficult to understand. However, Professor Pagden does go through the important points during lecture, so I would recommend going to lecture so you know what to write your paper on... he also doesn't post the lecture slides online either, so bring a laptop to class and take good notes!!

But overall, wonderful professor. Now that I graduated from UCLA with a polisci degree, I can look back and say that he is one of the most knowledgeble and best professors I had here in my four years.
