I just spent a long time writing out a very harsh review of Irvin Hunt, but decided that it was overly biased and heated, not to mention rambling. My basic opinion is that I find Hunt's communication abilities and, more importantly, his grasp on the material, to be simply unacceptable. Not only did I not feel that I learned anything new from him, I felt that there was a basic lack of clarity in the way he conducted class and the discussions that resulted. Two class periods was enough to totally convince me that an entire semester with Hunt would be highly unproductive. I recognize the limitations inherent in my viewpoint: having only attended two classes before switching sections, I cannot give anyone advice about the trajectory of the entire semester. I suppose all that I can really say is that, if anyone attends one class with him and finds it very frustrating, but wishes to wait and see if maybe the next class will be better, I can tell you that in my experience the next class was even worse. Potential students: I advise you to trust your instincts. I get the impression that the class would have been pretty easy, but the two classes I had with Hunt were quite possibly the most intellectually infuriating four hours of my life.
