Peacocke, Christopher
[PHIL C3912] Major Seminar in Philosophy: Subjects of Consciousness

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

Peacocke is a very bright professor. The other reviews are not completely accurate in saying that he is not good for undergraduates. The rule of thumb is, don't take his class if you don't already have a large amount of knowledge in the subject. For example, when I was a sophomore, I took subjects of consciousness with him, and I got a lot of the class, but I had taking philosophy of mind, philosophy of psychology, and I am also a psychology major as well as a philosophy major. Some people had never done any philosophy of mind and were lost, so those are the people who might think Peacocke is bad for undergraduates. Also, he is teaching philosophy of psychology in the Spring of 2010, which will probably be a great class if you know anything about psychology or philosophy of mind. If you don't you might want to talk to him first.

Workload:

1 presentation; 1 paper. Moderately hard grader.
