I really enjoyed this class with Professor Woodruff, she was extremely accomodating and helpful throughout the semester. Readings were also carefully selected and instructions on expectations of class were fairly clear. If you enjoy philosophy I think this course is a good place to start.

This class is a lot of fun, especially if you haven't read any philosophy. There is a fair amount of reading, but you don't really need to do it(however, it does make the class more interesting and fun) because the professor goes over the analysis of everything in class. The class discussions are fun, and while the class does cover a lot of ground, it isn't that fast-paced. The exams are not difficult as long as you listened and understood what was talked about in class.

I found this class very interesting and prof Jacobson definitely helped with that. He really made the class interesting and made me want to do the readings. We had two short papers, a presentation and a final ~3 page paper as the only assignments, but there was lots of readings. I did find writing papers on philosophy to be challenging so I would recommend going to office hours in order to get an idea of how the prof wants you to write. Overall though i did enjoy the class and would definitely recommend taking a class with Jacobson to anyone.
