Linus is a very interesting person. He seems to have very cool stories to tell and and he at times he can be very funny in class. However, there have been so many classes where he spent 30 mins yelling at us for not turning things on time. This is fair of him to do, however it was exhausting to listen to and I felt like we did not learn a lot because of it. His class is all over the place and he counts on you to do the readings. Overall, he seems like a nice guy, but not the greatest professor.

I really enjoyed the course, although it might not be for everyone. Linus definitely has an interesting style of teaching and even though there are only three papers in the semester, you should take them pretty seriously. You do get to decide your own grade at the end of the semester, on the condition that you show up to class, do the work, and are decently engaged. Pretty sweet!

I enjoyed Linus's teaching style in his previous course Society and the Individual so I thought this would be the same. I found this class to be much more tedious and the readings to be much more convoluted. Linus is still a great professor but you have to be engaged and invested in class topics to do well. Otherwise, make sure assignments are turned in on time as you will be fine.
