Gabbey, Alan
[PHIL BC1001] What is Philosophy?

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

I took Professor Gabbey's class Spring of 2009. The class is not the most engaging class I ever took in college, but it was a good introduction to philosophy. I took a more advanced philosophy class at the same time and the topics flowed nicely. Gabbey is a very sweet man who will happily explain anything to you after class. He welcomes questions and will actually help you on papers. If you attend each class and do each paper, you will most likely get at least an A-. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone who is remotely interested in philosophy.

Workload:

Not too bad. Three papers and a final. Reading for every class, but he goes over it very thoroughly so there is no need to read it very carefully.
