Robery Guay is young, clever, sharp, and energetic. He's also got a good sense of humor. The Nietzsche seminar involved a lot of monologues, which was a problem. Monologues, escpecially frequent ones from students and/or teachers regardless of how many impressive concepts are strung together, are not engaging.
The reading course covered 2 Nietzsche books (Daybreak, and Beyond Good and Evil). The course was desgined to produce one research paper with short, relevant assignments to aid the reaserch for the final paper. The organization of the assignments was appropriate and Guay's guidleines for the final paper were unusually comprehensible. Guay was also cool, very understanding outside of class with everyone i talked to, not to mention extremely charming and approachable. In fact, one GS student in our class is beside himself to recommend Prof. Guay for a teaching award and has contacted the whole senior seminar (after the semester's end) by email to encourage us all to make additional nominations.
Bottom line, the former review was very unflattering and incomplete. Robery Guay is new, he is knowledgeable, bright, understanding, dynamic, and open-minded. He can teach you a lot if you ask, and are willing to listen for the response. He also scheduled 2 of our classes as full guest-lectures by prominent Nietzsche scholars.
