Interesting class, but definitely not an easy one. I got low 80s on one of my essays AFTER meeting with her about it.

Had to write two essays and a final exam essay, so workload was not hard. (Although this is apparently only true for Wetstein's lecture, the other teacher is completely different. Definitely a very interesting class. Pretty much impossible to fail, but need to be an excellent philosopher to get over an 80 or 90.

Don't believe that list of topics! I took the course and only 3 topics were covered.
