This class was amazing. Robert Cohen is extremely knowledgable and enuthusiastic about the material which makes the class develop those same attitudes. There is a lot of reading but less work in class- only discussions which are very interesting and eye-opening. Expect a lot of essays but Cohen is a very fair grader. Everyone should take a class with Cohen at some point at Middlebury!

The Beast in the Jungle is a hard, interactive seminar that focuses on challenging books that speak about the mind and the human experience. Constant reading is required as you have to read a book a week. 3 essays are required throughout the course and graded fairly but hardly. Overall the course is worth it, but be ready to read.

This was an amazing seminar, the reading is constant with a new book to read every week, but the quality of the literature and the high level discussions every class make the experience very rewarding. Professor Cohen is extremely insightful and facilitates discussion very well, this course was a great experience.
