[PHIL V3260] Kierkegaard

April 28, 2004

Cross, Andrew
[PHIL V3260] Kierkegaard

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Cross clearly knows Kierkegaard and his lectures are complete, detailed, and full of thematic understanding. He gives good introductions and then plows into the texts to find out exactly where things are stated and presented.

His biggest problem is that he cannot schedule his lectures appropriately. He spent far too much time on one text (2/3 of the semester) and ended up boring the whole class to death before moving on. He needs to focus on a few main points (very difficult in Kierkegaard yes, but not impossible) and follow a syllabus (no, he didn't give us one).
Also, he was extremely tardy returning midterm essays. He didn't return them until the final class of the semester, which of course is too late to pass/fail or drop a class.

Overall I recommend him and hope he gets better about scheduling himself

Workload:

Light. Some sporadic bouts of heavy reading but nothing too bad for philosophy students. A light midterm and more challenging final.
