[CLME G4050] Freud & Derrida: An Introduction

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

He's no walk in the park (try Derrida or Freud!). I was confused by him, but that should not necessitate that he was confusing. It takes time to work on the level with him. He's moving very slowly. So slowly that I never caught up to him. He can handle silence. He listens well. He'll appear to say things that he did not say, hence people calling him mean. He sticks to his guns unless there's a strong enough point to convince him otherwise. His thought provocations are reason enough to stand in the classroom if there aren't any chairs.

Workload:

All of Freud, maybe Derrida. (Impossible)
A 10 page reading of one paragraph. (Possible)
