Comment: Took with Stroud. not a very good lecturer, he just talks in a quiet voice for the entire lecture, and its not compelling. i think the biggest problem of the class is the structure, since philosophy seems to work better with more discussion, rather than lecture. Section was very helpful, including gsi office hours. the material covered was interesting, but as my first philosophy class it seemed difficult because we weren't initially provided with much input on how to structure essays, which are judged overly strictly given that its a lower division class. My gsi rocked and i liked the books except for locke, so overall the class was ok but lecture was pointless.

Comment: Stroud is a great teacher. He is very knowledgeable on the philosophers covered and has even written some books on them. The class can be dry at times but it is a great class if you want to read some classics.
