Gabbey, Alan
[PHIL BC1001] What is Philosophy?

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

I will be honest; I took this class because I imagined it would be Aquinas for athletes. I was partly right in my initial assesment. After all, this 9am thriller attracts Columbia's best and brightest...and people like me who show up to half the classes, write the papers the night before they are due, do not study for the final and end up with an A. If you need a filler class with some man candy and entertainment in the form of overzealous freshmen and those who literally snore in front of you, take this. Gabbey is nice enough if you're a morning person, and not someone who is going to track you down if you're not.

Workload:

Cake. Even for a Barnard intro class.
