I loved taking Intro to Philosophy with Professor Dershowitz this year. She makes class really fun and engaging by encouraging class discussions and answering lots and lots of questions. If you're the type of person that likes organized, textbook learning then you probably won't like this class. But if you love discussing different opinions, going on some interesting tangents, and just generally talking in class, you'll love this class. I learned a lot about the philosophy of the mind, personal identity, and knowledge claims. This is a great class if you think you might be interested in philosophy but don't want to dive headfirst into thick, heavy readings. The workload was minimal and the exams were challenging but not too difficult. 10/10 would recommend this class to my friends!
