Recent European Philosophy

Sep 2005

A great guy and a great class. Mostly covered Heidegger with a bit of Focault at the end. He really teaches you how to read and understand Heidegger--first reading, i was LOST, but after the first lecture or two, I was able to start understanding the readings and really getting into some of the complex issues they dealt with. Carmen does a great job stressing and flushing out these ideas without being overly reductive..my only complaint is that he sometimes took too much time answering and contemplating the issues which students brought up. Still, overall, a great class.
