A+

I was quite surprised when i got an A+ because the teacher doesn't tell you your grades for your quiz or assignments.

To get a decent grade for the quiz, you have to have a basic understanding of the readings. Which might sound easy but when you start reading you would find it pretty daunting as it is packed with both science and philosophy jargons. I actually doubt if the professor understood the readings as he asked questions like who is the author of a particular essay and whats the title about ...

With the group project, the important thing is that you stir up conversations during the discussion time. Our group presented about the topic death and was lucky that half of the class was engaged in our discussion questions. The teacher really places emphasis on the discussion part so your group should come up with interesting questions.

Its worth taking if you are interested in philosophy :)

A-

Tutor:唔熱誠,唔認真教
Assignment:唔多,但是難。required reading 非常多,難讀懂
走咗一堂,所以a-,小組presentation做得好,除我以外應該都係A+同埋A。呢個課勤力=grade,給分相對公平。對philosophy有興趣既人可以來學!

1. Tutor: hea 底,感覺對教書冇乜熱誠,但都幾睇重學生既回應,亦會樂意解答學生問題

2. 工作量:attendance同平時主動舉手答下問題就計class participation分;一份group project(5-7 人一組), 題目六選一,圍繞堂上所學;一份individual assignment, 題目同project一樣,要求學生再深入分析題目抒發己見,要同時應用一啲哲學理論(即係唔好亂吹);最後有quiz,有mc,matching, explaining terms同essay, essay會預先比定六條題目你,quiz嗰時就出三選一

3. 課題:Introduction to Philosophy, God, Free Will, Mind, Ethics, Social and Political Philosophy (Lawrence 話有其他課題揀, 不過就睇下有冇學生提出,例如係Right and Wrong, Value of Nature, etc.)

4. 個人意見:首先我就喺課堂上冇講過嘢咁濟,亦都走過一堂,所以我諗我class participation唔係咁好,而Lawrence講到明佢幾睇重呢樣嘢;project唔算好難,題目係課堂上提及過既嘢,都叫比左個概念你先;assignment係project既深入版,建議睇多啲書同埋花少少時間理解相關既哲學理論;quiz我冇乜點溫到,建議留意細節,尤其係哲學家同理論名, essay當然要好好準備啦,深度見人見智,因為我自問唔係好理解到某啲哲學概念,有時同一件事太多不同切入角度既思考模式湧埋嚟,感覺會有啲迷失,好似永遠冇結論咁,不過或者咁先係哲學既特點掛,所以喺迷迷糊糊既情況下攞到B,我已經好滿足:D

老師有耐性, nice person, 呢個course 有present (30%), essay (30%), exam (30%), attendance (10%).
1. Attendance(10%) 佢要求學生自己簽自己個名,一經發現就會好嚴重, 不過佢冇發現過代簽. 相信學生好自律.
2. Present (30%) 一班45人分8組, 每組5-6人, 睇完一篇哲學文章,然後present 作者既idea, 如果冇接觸過philosophical paper既人都未必能體會有幾難明, 但present 唔使加其他reference, present 漏point 會扣分, 文章大約4000 – 8000 字 (大約4- 8 頁), 30 分鐘時間present , 然後15 分鐘以上Q&A (by Challenge Group), 所以全組最好明晒篇文.
3. Essay (30%) 700字左右, 寫d argumentative essay, 最重要logical, no contradiction.
4. Closed-book Exam (30%) 佢叫test, 其實都算final exam, 40% 20 T/F, 60% 2 Essay. T/F 係答中2分,答錯扣1分, Essay 似功課咁.
(I) COURSE MATERIAL
12 份ppt + 13份word, ppt同word相似, ppt 大約50-70張slide 全字冇圖
(II) COURSE CONTENT
Philosophy of science, Political Philosophy, Philosophy of mind, Environmental Ethics, Philosophy of Religion
Philosophy of science: e.g. Induction, deduction, etc
Political Philosophy: e.g. Minimal state, civil disobedience, etc
Philosophy of mind: e.g. Dualism, Materialism, etc
Environmental Ethics: e.g. Anthropocentric, Bio-centric, Eco-centric view, etc

有咩問題, sit 第1堂睇下咩環境, 唔中意bloody philosophy既話就drop/唔好add
總之, 一分耕耘一分收穫
