[PHIL C3912] Senior Seminar (Perception)

Peacocke, Christopher
[PHIL C3912] Senior Seminar (Perception)

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

Peacocke has written extensively and successfully on a variety of topics in philosophy, and his expertise is apparent in his teaching. This is good and bad in that unless you're serious about the topic, you are likely to find his class to be a little too technical. His teaching seems geared towards those who wish to BE philosophers, or at least pursue some serious graduate study in the field. If you are one of these students, by all means, take his class because like I said, he's as talented as they come (google him if you don't want to take my word for it).

Workload:

Intense, technical reading; a brief presentation on one of the readings and a 20-25 page final ppr, graded stirctly but probably fairly even though I would have liked a better grade after putting in that much work. Start early on the paper - it only gets harder to stay technically specific and consistent as you progress.
