This class is terrible. It's boring and the material is also. Also, the professor and the TAs expect such high quality philosophy papers from mostly first year students in an introductory philosophy course. It's bad enough to sit through that aweful class, but to be subject to such harsh grading is ridiculous. Also, the final was terribly written. It doesn't test knowledge of the material; instead, it tests how lucky a guesser you are, as the answer choices are very obscure.

If you're looking for a class that's based on how well you know the material rather than how lucky you are, don't take this one.

OMG. Worst class, worst professor EVER, and this is my 3rd year at UCLA. She talks too fast, she's boring and the class is just WAY TOO HARD. I mean it's not that the material is hard, the way that it's graded is just ... ridiculous. Just DON'T TAKE HER

This course is by far one of the toughest classes I have taken. The readings were long hard and boring, lectures put me to sleep, and my TA (Dawn Starr) is the most patronizing person I have ever met. Grades are based on two papers and a final. The first paper isn't bad but it gets harder. This class is a lot of work, I wouldn't recomend taking it as a GE. Stay away from it if at all possible.

I, personally, really enjoyed the class. It seemed at first the this professor was somewhat nervous, but she eventually warmed up to the class. I think that most complaints about her are merely because students don't feel that learning should be something they take an active role in. This professor acted as a guideline to my learning and not just facts inserted into my mind. I must prefer that type of professor (whether intentional or not) and much appreciated it.

If you don't want to think, you probably shouldn't be taking philosophy classes. If you don't want to think, maybe you shouldn't even be in college...

I really do not want to sound mean, but this professor is by far one of the worst at UCLA. She stumbles over ideas, confusing the students. She asks the class: "Is that clear?" and she expects someone to raise their hand and say what? "Uh, I have no idea what you've been talking about for the past 30 minutes." She is so unclear and extremely difficult to understand and follow during her lectures. Her teaching style needs a serious overhall.
