[C3912] Seminar: Political Philosophy

February 18, 2013

Moody-Adams, Michele Silver_nugget
[PHIL V3752] Philosophy of Law and [C3912] Seminar: Political Philosophy

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

I don't find that any of the reviews are doing Professor Moody-Adams justice as I took two classes with her. First off, like [almost] every class, you can get as much or as little as you want out of it- the difference here is that she is by far THE most approachable person you will encounter at Columbia. I actually started the semester as a somewhat numb and unmotivated senior and quickly learned that neither one of her classes were going to be "cake" so to speak. I too almost cried after my first paper, but then I made a decision to do work, go to office hours and *actually* learn things that I will remember in 10 years. Let me say that it completely paid off and her classes even impacted my motivation and academic trajectory. To conclude, if you've ever felt neglected and frustrated by professors and need to know what a real educator is like - take advantage of the great opportunity to learn from a scholar of her class and take a course with her- you will be both educated and inspired as she is kind, brilliant, and incredibly generous. After all, isn't that what you came to Columbia for?

Workload:

Seminar: a presentation and a seminar paper.
Philosophy of Law: two essays, a midterm, and a take home final (with plenty of time).
