Why I like this professor and why you should take Phil. 7 from him:

Mark Greenberg was an amazing professor and I highly recommend taking philosophy 7 with him. The first day of class was confusing, but don't let that scare you! Mark was more than willing to meet with students out of class, set up review sessions, and he even went through the trouble of posting ALL of his lectures online.

Let's be honest. Philosophy is confusing, and philosophy of the mind forces you to think about thinking -- a difficult supposition. Mark made sure to review every lecture and take questions before moving on. Professor Greenberg also used silly examples to keep students interested. Example while talking about whether or not animals feel pain, he used the example of stabbing a puppy through the stomach! AAAAAA!

Also, there is very little reading for this class. We usually read less than 20 pages a week. The reading is very straightfoward in that it's written in plain, uncomplicated english (as philosophy should be), but the issues it talks about are deep and complex, so you have to read SLOWLY.

How to succeed:

The best way to succeed in this class is this:

1. Mark assigns homework weekly (it's very very short) and they only check for completion, but if you actually try to do a good job on it, you'll pick things up much morequickly.

2. Start working on your paper early, as it counts for about 30% of your grade, and go over it with your T.A. as many times as possible.

3. Go to section. Somethings are confusing, but the sections are designed to clarify the lecture, and they usually do a good job summarizing everything.

WHY YOU SHOULD BE WARY! :

This is not an easy GE. I took this class as a GE and because I'm interested in philosophy. Previous teachers created the reputation that this was an easy class, and while it's not very hard, it's not a breeze either. It requires some very deep thinking, not just memorization. Take this class if you want a challenge and you want to expand your understanding of the world, not because you need to get a class out of the way.

FINAL GRADE RECEIVED: A
T.A. : Jorah

Philosophy 7

Very interesting lecture. Topics are interesting and the best organization and presentation of lecture material. Not an easy class but if you talk to your TA about how to write a good paper its defnitely worth it.
