Great professor. If you do the readings you will be fine for the tests. Gives questions out a week before exam, take home and in class prelims, caring and understanding of students, dry but knows his material very well. Willing to meet and talk

Comment:
Very articulate and knowledgeable. Knows what he is talking about and is very open to discussing ideas. Many people will give a low rating because they don't know how to read or pay attention. His voice might be a bit dry and you might fall asleep, but if you listen to him and are engaged, you will walk away from his classes thinking.

Comment:
It's not a bad class but it's hard if you don't read the sections assigned. There is no homework or exams. You only have to write four prelim papers. Each paper consists of 4 to 5 questions. Be prepared to write a lot because he is a very tough grader. Go to class, because you won't pass if you don't. he can be boring but it's not the hardest

So, Mr. King is a great talker, He is able to talk for hours on end, however, his voice is monotone enough to be comparable to 10 tablets of Xanax. I fall asleep often, I do other homework and try my hardest to listen. it's rough. He has funny moments that are brief and few and far between. join this class if you don't mind sleeping opened eyed.

Comment:
He is a great guy and knows what he is talking about, but he is so dry that it makes me so sleepy. The subject is interesting, but he doesn't post power points or anything he just talks forever. You have to read the book for exams. One great thing about the class is you don't have homework, you just have prelims, but he is a tough grader.

Really nice guy! No homework, just prelims. He definitely knows what he's talking about when it comes to philosophy and he's really open about people asking questions and furthering the discussion. Would recommend.

Comment:
This class (Environmental Ethics) was seemingly interesting. He seems like a nice guy but he is by far the most dry, boring professor on campus. If you can absorb what he says and spit it back you'll get a good grade. Horrible teacher, but nice guy.

Good class for a basic understanding of what it is entitled, Contemporary Moral Problems, though I don't think it should be THE intro philosophy course. He's a good prof, just don't be too tired going into class.

It's been 4 years since I've taken the class and I still remember the main concepts and theories he taught in the class. He is really amazing. He encourages you to want to learn more about the subject. Great professor and pro-environment theorist. And maybe he put me B, but what matters is the knowledge I gained that I'm using till today-Great guy.

Terrible....... completly agree with other things that have been said.... amazingly unfair grader who uses bias rather than fact to grade papers. Worst professor of my tenure here and I've had awful ones... hell the entire university is full of them.

I got a high grade but I think that its because he liked me but if he doesn't like you expect a low grade. Not a fair grader.

It was a 100 level Ethics class, he was very stuffy and hard to talk to intelectually. Very jump man gave me a lower grade on a test when I had the same answers as someone else who got an "A", think he didn't like me. I've heard he's better no

Great professor-- was dreading the class, took it to fill a gen ed, and ended up loving it. His exams and papers suck, but the lecture was great. And he looks like Al Gore. What more can you ask for at 8AM?
