Professor Parsons explained the course material in a simple way that wasnt too hard to grasp. I suggest that you read the first and second weeks readings for the class -- its important that you get a firm hold on the basics. After that you dont need to do the readings, he explains everthing in class. Unfortunately, a logic course is one of those classes were you either get the concept or you don't. If you dont, you may have to work harder than others. But overall, I appreciated how Parsons was simple in his explanations and always allowed time for questions in his lectures. The homework and tests are all online and the tests are open book and open notes. There are TA help sessions pretty much every day of every week if you dont get it. I highly recommend this class rather than Stats 10 if you just want to satisfy the Quantitative Reasoning GE.

Prof. Parsons is a solid instructor. Phil. 31 is a damn easy class, so it's hard to rate the instructor fairly. Keep in mind that if you plan to take Phil 31, you are going to get an easy A regardless of which instructor you choose. Everything is done over the computer...the exams, the HW, everything.

Overall, a decent lecturer though!

Parsons is such a cute little man; this course was like taking logic from my grandpa. Ditto on what others have said about him getting confused and accidentally teaching incorrect information, but he was always quick to admit mistakes and correct them. His class seems hard at first... my advice is to go through all the possible problems (not just the assigned ones) in order, which will give you a comprehensive understanding of the material. It is possible to get an A in 31 without going to lecture, but Parsons is such a nice ol' guy that you feel guilty if you don't.
