Ratings for Ginsborg, H
Based on 15 ratings for this instructor.
Comment: Ginsborg is a great lecturer full of enthusiasm and entirely knowledgeable regarding Modern Philosophy. I spent a lot of time talking with her during her office hours as she is very accessible and welcoming to any questions (even those that may deviate from course material). The material covered was fairly interesting and the way she outlined the proofs were very clear. Great course to take!

Comment: There were three papers and a final for this class. The first paper was very harshly graded, though I think this might depend on your GSI. I took this class because I thought it would be an interesting way to fulfill my philosophy requirement. Boy was I wrong! The material was boring even though Ginsborg tried her best to make it interesting. If you do not like philosophy or have no interest in it, please do yourself a favor and NOT take this class.

Comment: Ginsborg was a good lecturer, very enthusiastic and excited about philosophy. However I thought the material was ridiculously boring and I never wanted to do any of the reading...luckily I had a great GSI so the essays and final exam weren't so bad. It'd probably be a great class if you're actually interested in philosophy, but if you don't have to take it then I don't recommend it.

Comment: Good lecturer, though she doesn't use Powerpoints or anything so if you miss lecture there's not really anything else you can do but hope to get notes. Kind of difficult to write everything down while she's talking. The given 3 essays were interesting to write though my (or maybe all the GSI's) graded more harshly than necessary. Final was fair; given 10 questions to take home, told that 7 of them would show up on the final and that we'd have to do 4 of them.

Comment: Love the professor! She's really knowledgeable and passionate! However, I don't recommend taking this class just to fulfill a breadth requirement. The material is very abstract and it's not easy to get an A. Your grade is made up of three 20% essays and a 40% final.
