I loved taking this class so much! It was interesting to learn about justice, the just man, injustice, and the idea of the "good". Professor Dover is a great lecturer. Her lectures were very engaging and I was interested in each lecture the whole time. In this class, we read The Republic by Plato, which is a somewhat difficult book to understand. However, her lectures help one understand the reading material much better. The coursework is not heavy, although one has to read the material twice in order to understand the meaning. Overall, I loved taking philosophy 6 with Professor Dover.
I took Philos 6 with Daniela Dover Winter 2017. This was her first time teaching a large lecture (she previously had only taught graduate seminars). She is very sweet and accommodating of students, but she had no idea how to make a plan for coursework for the quarter. She was quite sick for a large portion of the quarter and we thereby fell far behind, and she expected students to continue learning coursework even when lectures were cancelled multiple times. That being said, you can put in minimal work into this class and still receive a good grade. The midterm was open note and the final, she gives you the questions that she'll be asking on the midterm. Overall, this course wasn't what I was expecting and it isn't the easiest GE just because it can get quite frustrating, but it's an easy way to fulfill certain GE requirements.
