Comment:
I've taken 2 courses with him: ethics and philosophy of religion. The readings are pretty difficult so I eventually just stopped because he gives you everything you need in class. He expects you to participate in the discussions (which are great!) but if you seem like a good student and prepare well for the tests, he'll still like you.

Comment:
He was such a great professor. I had never taken a philosophy course before but his lectures made me genuinely interested in the subject. His exams are hard, but I went to him in the middle of the semester for help and he met with me several times to make sure I would ace the final and pass the class. He's a great professor who knows his stuff.

Dr. Good is the best professor I've ever had. He expects you in class and will respect you if you show an interest in the material. Take very detailed notes and participate in discussion class and you'll do fine. Great teacher who has a genuine interest in your success.

Comment:
This class was very interesting. Take notes beyond what he writes on the board! If you take good notes and memorize them- the tests will be a breeze. They're all short answers and essays so you must know the material. Dr. Good is very good at making the material interesting since it has the potential to be boring. I wouldn't bother buying the book

Good is GOOD!!! AMazing professor! Almost made me switch my major to philosophy, that's how good he is. For the who want to stimulate their brains, take him. For those who do not want to learn, take him too, he will make you want to learn. It's important to be able to think and create thoughts:)

Dreaded the class, but ended up loving it. Take very detailed notes, it will only help you in the end (he writes some up on the board). GO TO CLASS or you will be lost. He seems intimidating, but actually funny and nice. If you need help ASK! He will go above and beyond to make sure you understand. Discussion class very important, don't skip!

Comment:
Dr. Good is my all time favorite professor. If you take his classes seriously you are going to become a better thinker and writer, more interesting, and, yes, a more successful person in life. Existentialism is probably the best class I ever took. But, if you get too into it, you may find yourself getting depressed -- yea I am being serious.
