Grade: A+
COVID-19 This review was submitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your experience may vary.
Dec. 30, 2020

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 We were reading Hieronymi's unpublished manuscript with optional secondary readings and it was exciting to read the work and ask her questions about it.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.

Professor Hieronymi used a manuscript she was working on as the textbook for the class. The manuscript was intriguing, tackling several ideas that were more complicated than we thought. However, the further we got into the book, the more difficult the material became, to the point of being confusing often. I never personally attended office hours, several classmates said it was helpful so if you take this professor make time for office hours!!! There was reading assigned every week, with a page of homework (answering questions) due at the beginning of the week before class, 7AM. The papers were tough, only about 6 students in the entire class got an A on the first paper. Take your time with her papers. Just know its difficult work, but its very fascinating.
