Somerville, Robert Silver_nugget

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

Very clear lecturer but can get a little boring. He is very easy to follow becasue he writes all the key terms for the lecture on the board before class starts so you know where class is going. He does try to spice things up with his jokes but inevitably he can get boring. The best part of the course is his course reader which is all primary sources. Those readings are pretty interesting.


2 quizes and final. The reading list is completely optional except for one book by augustine and the course reader. The tests are all easy. They are essays on excerpts from texts which he tells you about beforehand so it is an easy A.
