Comment:
Best philosophy teacher at Bucknell, regardless of your major you owe it to yourself to take one of his classes. If you are looking for a teacher who will just explain to you what long dead philosophers thought, look elsewhere, but if you want a teacher who is more concerned with the posing of questions that make you think, look no further.

OUTSTANDING TEACHER. Fleming is funny and really knows his stuff. Class material isn't that bad if you do a few practice problems. You learn a lot.

Comment:
Fleming is an incredible professor; quite clear and terse. He is very accessible outside of class (although he doesn't use any modern communication i.e. email or phone). This class specifically was VERY easy. All that I had to do was take lots of notes in the class. There is no homework, no reading, and no finals. Would definitely take again.

Comment:
Fleming has an interesting sense of humor that you may love or may just have to get used to. He is pretty funny during class, and also is great at lecturing. I learned a lot in logic. It's pretty easy as long as you go to class, take notes, and study. There are no homeworks and only 4 tests. Would recommend!

Comment:
By far the best professor I've ever had. I 10/10 recommend him. The class itself can be difficult, but the material builds off of itself so as long as you put in the effort you should be fine. The only grades are four exams, but if you show that you're trying to the best of your abilities, then he has no problem boosting your grade from a B to a B+

Comment:
He is by far my favorite professor at Bucknell. I have this class at 8am and it always starts my day on a good note. He doesn't take attendance so you can just sleep in if you feel like it and easily get the notes from someone else. He gave no homework and we just had 4 exams throughout the semester. No final exam.

Comment:
Fleming is by far the best professor I've ever had. He's an outright genius, he's hysterical, and he is a great lecturer. You know Fleming is the most loved prof at Bucknell because he can get away with refusing to use a computer or university email, all while having a rock as his directory photo. Do not graduate without taking a class with him!

He's such a cool guy. I definitely enjoyed his class, although some of the material was tough, as long as you went to class you'd do fine. Always did his best to explain and reviewed what we learned at the beginning of each class. However he doesn't use email or phone, so somewhat hard to get in contact with him

Comment:
He is clear, precise, and tells you what to expect. But he's also rather brackish for serious students and convinces people he's like Wittgenstein, even though he's really just a gruff version of Turner (who is better). You need to throw his teaching aside-transcend it so to speak-if you really want to learn anything. Take his class; question it.

Fleming is maybe the coolest professor at Bucknell, or ever, anywhere. He hates the administration as much as the students do, if not more. Refuses to use computers; the only thing in his office is a plain desk with a rock on it. If you dont take his classes, I dont know whats wrong with you

Comment:
By far the greatest teacher at Bucknell. If you take four classes with him, it will be the best philosophy minor possible. Scary smart and also hilarious in class. Not too difficult if you take good notes and study for exams because he pretty much tells you ahead of time what will be on the exams

Had him for Phil 103 (logic) and 233....He is the greatest prof by far! hilarious...never a dull moment in class! Pretty much tells you what will be on the test, so if you take good notes you'll get an A.

Took this guy in 2003, but he came to mind so I googled him and found this site. The guy is a bucknell treasure. I hope he still refuses to try email. "And by that point you will not know logic... you will be logic."

He's a really great teacher. I thought that he taught the material very clearly. Did not study very much and got an A. Just be sure to do some of the problems that he recommends in the book before the day of the test and you'll do fine.

Comment:
he's a refreshing part of my day between two science classes. he's hillarious, often talks to himself and teases the students which is fun, he called someone in the class a dumbsh*t the other day, but it's all for laughs. the third test is hard, but do the problems in the book and you'll be fine. TAKE HIM, he's a part of bucknell you shouldn't miss

Flemming is a great professor. He teaches philosophy by getting you to think. Go to class and pay attention and it's hard to go wrong in the class.
