Comment:
Had Thompson for Knowing Animal Minds. The course description made the class seem very interesting but we actually learned nothing throughout the entire year. He was very unorganized and there seemed to be little to no connection between topics each class. His grading system is a mystery as he returned almost none of our work. Avoid this class

Comment:
so bad. i thought that the class would be interesting, but it wasn't. it was boring and seemed pointless and not relevant at all. i don't think i learned anything. there were never any assignments, which sounds nice, but i would have done them if they were assigned to at least learn something. the tests were impossible and random

Comment:
Animal Minds is cool, but the grading is ridiculous. I am a smart person. I have As in every other class, yet I received a 66 on the first test. The highest grade in the class was an 82! That is unacceptable; when a teacher sees that their best grade is a B-, they should see a problem with that. No curve either. Despicable. He needs to wake up!!!

Never take this class! Spare yourself!!! Thompson speaks in a pretentious manner, and makes many negative comments towards females. I was really looking forward to this class and I am deeply disappointed.

Best mentor a student could ever ask for, as long as you're not afraid of a little hard work.

DO NOT TAKE THIS DUMBASS, this guy is seriously the worst teacher at F&M, he just lectures about useless **** then tests you on the most useless details. He makes his class impossible, and class is EXTREMELY boring.

He just sits there and refers to a bunch of authors on the first day as if we know what he's talking about "Budiansky this" "Bavidge and ground that". Also he should seriously learn to place assigned readings on edisk.

Very interesting class, but his exams are just a little too difficult for a foundations course. Nice professor who is very knowledgable in his field.

From my experience and to those I've talked to, he seems to be a hit or miss kinda guy... you either love him or hate him. I think he's a great guy, and great teacher, but his tests are pretty hard. Not as bad as it was hyped up to be though. Definitley get on his good side.

Like a coach, made me reach my potential. didn't take any excuses for less than what I could do rather than what I was willing to produce with less effort.

You would be hard pressed to find a teacher as knowledgable and interesting as he. And he loves to make you think for yourself!
