I felt obligated to give a review since most of hers seem to be from 10+ years ago. Professor Hieronymi was great, especially because I'm a visual learner. She explains things clearly and laid out an entire curriculum with readings that fit together—it felt like I was taking a course at a small LAC. She also was extremely helpful in office hours, and even in class she made a point to remember everyone's names.

Philosophy's hard guys. The material is challenging, but she did a great job as professor for this course.

I really enjoyed this class especially considering my interest in the subject matter. We were reading Hieronymi's unpublished manuscript with optional secondary readings and it was exciting to read the work and ask her questions about it.

Requires weekly reading responses to her works based on questions she provides.
2 papers; One 3-5 pages and the other 8-10 pages.
Also a brief presentation on your final paper topic (which I found to be extremely helpful in writing the final paper).

I wished I had taken a previous version of the class so I could better understand the background material before reading her manuscript (which was provided in the secondary reading, there was just no time to read them meaningfully).

This class took the most time out of all my classes that quarter, probably 3-4 hours outside of class a week except when papers were due.

I had work during her office hours so I was only able to go a couple of times. She seemed extremely determined that I understand the material, even if it took me a couple of times suggesting portions I still didn't understand. The generosity she expressed was authentic and welcome.

If you want to learn more about free will and moral responsibility, take this class. If you want an easy A, don't.
