I'm a fifth-year Phil. student, I have taken courses with such professors as Normore, Kelsey, Burge, Lawrence- Lottenbach, for me, is the BEST Phil. professor I have had at UCLA. His lectures are very clear and descriptive- he has an amazing way with words which is even more impressive considering that English is not his first language. This class analyzed the political philosophies of Kant, Hegel and early Marx. Because of his AWSOME knowledge of these philosophers Lottenbach was able to cover thier respective ideas w/o becoming entangled in their thoeries of knowledge. When a question sprang up from someone concerning some nuance of metaphysics (this happened more often while discussing Kant, seeing as Kant's philosophy in many ways serves as the basis for Marx and Hegel) he was able to explain it clearly and intelligbly. I mean, the guy was citing passages from Kant's Critique of Pure Reason- are you freakin' kidding me?!? I had taken Kant the previous quarter and this class gave me a much better understanding of Kant's project. If you are a Phil. major, do not graduate w/o taking Lottenbach.... Those who appreciate light workloads will revel in the fact that both the midterm and final are take-home.

Prof. Lottenbach has to be one of the best philosophy professors at UCLA. He is extremely intelligent and knows how to teach philosophy really well. He makes things clear enough so that students understand them, he allows time for students to ask questions so that he knows that we understand the material, and he is an extremely FAIR grader. I would definitely recommend him to any student interested in philosophy.
