Albert, David
[PHIL W3551] Philosophy of Science

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

David Albert is a horrible professor. His lectures are discombobulated and he wastes an incredible amount of time in class re-explaining the same material over and over and over, leaving you with a sense that even Albert doesn't know where he is going with the material. If you have questions, don't bother e-mailing him, visitng his office hours, or trying to catch him after class. He will not respond to a single e-mail you send him, frequently does not show up to his office hours, and will immediately dart out of the classroom after lecture, shooing people off, directing them to e-mail him. It took Albert nearly 4 months to grade my final paper, during which time he did not respond to any of my inquiries as to what was going on. I took this class in the Fall and he did not submit my grade until the summer. Simply put, Albert is absolutely awful.

Workload:

One final paper, 100% of the grade. ~15 pages. Don't expect your grade back anytime soon.
