You can miss up to 5 questions(out of 12) on each weekly quiz and get a 100% if you do the out of class extra credits. Otherwise you can still miss 2 for a 100.

Comment:
I should've put "more papers," but not the kind you write. Weir gives you tons of handouts that are completely irrelevant. He is very egotistical and spent the entire class talking about his travels and ability to read Greek. Completely irrelevant to the course. Monotone. Boring. Irrelevant lectures make the tests impossible. Would never take again

Very nice and helpful professor. Highly recommend for gen ed courses. He understands they shouldn't be overly difficult but you do have to pay attention and study for exams.

Comment:
Was extremely easy but as a class I kind of looked forward to taking I was disappointed in it. Weir is very boring. You would think many environmental and animals ethics would be talked about but this is not the case. Instead it mainly focuses on the basic tenets of philosophy. Extremely easy overall but did not enjoy it because it was so boring.

He is perhaps the most boring professor I've ever had. He talks so slow, drawn out and monotone. I do not recommend taking him. He is nice though.

Fascinating. I didn't realize how many directions the mind could go. I no longer see things in black or white. Definitely a class to take. Dr. Weir is very helpful if you have a family crisis.

Wow! Really makes you think. Ticks some conservative people off. Always willing to lend an ear or help with a problem. A real ethicist.

Lecture did not cover half of what we were studying. Quizzes every week. Does not give clear explanations of anything that he expects you to do. Very "out there" Good luck if you take the class!!

Comment:
As for the comment that 333 is only about "sex with animals" only,that's insanely absurd. Weir brings a lot of topics to the table in 333. He does a great job presenting the horrors of commercial agriculture, and challenges you to develop your ethical views on a variety of local, national, and global enviro issues. 499c,wonderful class too

Nice man, very intelligent, but boring to the max...take 8 pages of notes a day and nothing from them will be on the test. Does give a lot of opportunities for extra credit though. A bit eccentric, but not bad.

He is not a good communicator, when we talk he doesn't seem to be listening. And he is hard to learn from.
