PHIL 1204
Knowledge and Reality
4****
1204 is easy with him. 4 Papers and most everyone gets B's on them. The TA grades them so just go meet with the TA and they usually instruct you what to say. A lot of the things you read can be found on sparknotes. Coming to class is essential. 25% of your grade is attendance and participation... but don't feel you have to say something every class. You can be quiet, attend all classes, get B's on all the papers, and finish with an A-. (like me) simply b/c you came to every class. He would occasionaly give a pop quiz to go towards attendance and participation grade that would be like "who wrote the book we are reading" or "what is your favorite movie". Just an attendance quiz, even though he takes attendance each day. Easy class, he is an asshole though so don't let his rough appearance deter you. He is knowledeable and entertaining and I love how he hates Bush more than me.

Knowledge and Reality
4****
His personality in class is very entertaining and in line with philosophy "weirdness." Not easy to get an A, all grades are papers/participation. He will pick on you if you say stupid stuff. Reading is the only homework.
