Comment:
Dr. Floyd is one of those professors who loves to hear himself talk; the entire class is a snooze fest. Most of the information he is teaching can be explained in simple sentences, yet he drags one concept out for an hour and it still doesn't make any sense. Don't listen to the lectures, they will only confuse you, just study the readings.

Comment:
A good person and a great educator. I've never met a person who could use Aquinas, Flannery O'Connor, Alfred Hitchcock, and Nietzsche effectively, in the same course, and to teach a lot of the same lessons. I think he's brilliant and kind, and I took every class he offered.

If you like thinking and want to be challanged in the class then you will love him. He is a really great professor and very knowledgable in his subject area. He is also funny and quirky. But his class is very diffcult and it is not easy to get an A, but I thought the difficuly was worth it because I learned a lot!

Philosophy isn't always an easy subject to understand, but Floyd did a great job. He easily held the class' attention. I also took Love, Sex, and Marriage w/ Floyd. It makes you think if nothing else.

Comment:
I hated him at first. I thought he was very egotistical. I also am not a fan of philosophy - it isn't my forte. He is a funny man, but his class revolves around an hour lecture each class, 2 papers, 2 exams, and participation points. That is all. I felt like he talked way above the class' understanding level. Not my favorite.

Amazing teacher. Rather eccentric, but a great heart and love of teaching. Very ADHD, but will get to his point. Very entertaining to have as a teacher. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Comment:
This class was hard for me; it is especially hard if you don't have a lot of backround in theology I think. He is a hard grader and very detail oriented on essays. He does have a good sense of humor though so at least the class wasn't a complete bore.

I want to dress up in a gorilla suit, wait in his car and jump out at him when he opens the door to go home. He'd be so scared. That would be really funny.

Comment:
Malone's official Papist, he is the philosophy professor most mentioned, usually in lavish praise. A genius -philosophically, theologically, and in general, cares genuinely about his students who actually try -academically and personally, and above all, makes philosophy FUN! One of my favorite all time profs, as my friend says, "I heart Dr. Floyd"

At first I thought he was a jerky, arrogant teacher and I hated the class. Towards the end of the semester I had grown to like him because I saw that he had a passion for what he was teaching, and he liked to go off track sometimes. VERY funny. Hard class and kind of a pain, but I like the teacher.

His class was not as difficult as I heard it would be. He is a tough grader on papers, and the class is a lot of work though. He has a good sense of humor and really gets to know his students.

Awful, just plain horrible. By far the most uncaring professor I have ever had. Does he actually consider himself a Christian?

recall! He is a hard grader, but every class was worth the time spent in class. He invested time in helping me with a career path and I truly felt like he cared about me as a person, not just a number in his class.

He is one of the best profs at Malone, and the best Philosophy professor hands down. For those who critique floyd, its either because you don't have an aptitude for philosophy, or he gave you a bad grade. Plus he is hip and has one of the best ears for good music I know of on this campus.

It's been a while since I had him as a prof, but I remember always enjoying his classes. I don't remember a tough work load, and I had a lot of fun during lectures. He always had something funny to show/tell us.
