All Ratings and Reviews for Moshe Idel
Run! run away. don't even try it. absolutely the worst prof i have ever had. no midterm, no paper... 100% of the grade on the final. the fun part is when he MAKES UP WORDS and expects you to regurgitate it all back to him. never available for office hours, didn't have time for anyone. he is the epitome of the UCLA professor more interested in research than in teaching.
Since the only review posted so far about Moshe Idel failed to mention that the man is an absolute genius, I thought I should write to let you guys know. Everything else said is true. He is not available outside of class, he does make up words, and all of your grade depends on the final. However, in class, he is more willing to stop and explain himself then any other teacher I've had at UCLA. If you are interested in Jewish mysticism, then you should take his class.
