Duncy D is honestly such a gem. Made me realize I didnt actually hate philosophy after the X part of my course, I just didnt like the teachers until him. Really engaging lectures and a funny guy who genuinely cares about students

Duncan is so intelligent. You can't help but be intrigued by everything he says. He not only is incredibly smart but he's extremely kind. I went to his office hours skeptical because he is so sure his students will do well in the course but after discussing content with him, I was completely relaxed. He truly cares about his students.

Professor MacIntosh was fantastic this semester. His exams were fair and he really cares about his students and wants them to succeed. He's very enthusiastic, and it shows throuhgout every lecture which made me enjoy coming to class. After the first semester with Prof. Jeffers I was thinking of dropping it but I'm glad I didn't.

Dunc is honestly such a G. Absolutely HATED the X segment of the course and Dr. MacIntosh completely changed my perspective around and made me love philosophy. He makes everything very clear and prints notes for the class so you don't have to write your own. Take his class if you can!!

Honestly, MacIntosh was an incredible professor, he was super funny and says things multiple times so that you completely understand the concepts. I would totally recommend taking this course even as an elective, as it is interesting and so long as you show up to class and listen you will do well.

If you're in any way considering dropping out because you had a boring, low-energy prof (like I did with Professor Jeffers), then stick with it so you can get Professor MacIntosh. He explains things in a very easy to understand way, and tests are relatively easy as he makes sure to grind the information into your skull, in a funny, interesting way.

Truly amazing professor, changed my views of philosophy after almost dropping out after first semester with different (awful) prof. Every single lecture was top, I even shed tears at the end of his last lecture. Do yourself a favor and take any of his classes, such a pleasure!

Prof was an inspiration after the previous semester when I almost dropped the course, I'm happy I didn't because I really like Philosophy. He has a natural way of delivering his lecture and the discussion segments after each lecture are very interesting. You won't be disappointed.

One of the most influential profs i've had. Saved my mark and view on philosophy after the X semester of the course. Inspiring, understanding and so wise. Delivers the material in an interesting, straightforward and humorous way which makes it easier to engage in the class and do well. Knew he would be an amazing prof from day one.

God he is the best prof at Dal, he'll even tell you himself. This class is made amazing by him as my last philosophy professor completely ruined my view on philosophy, but Macintosh revived it. If you can, def take a course by him. He's so funny, and he'll make sure your ideas are heard. This is one of those classes where anything said isn't wrong

This is the best prof I've had at Dal so far. Duncan is hilarious, cares about the students & takes time each class to individually ask every student if they have a question. He reviews the important stuff from the previous classs & clearly outlines what you need to know and the lectures are interesting. This class has saved my view on philosophy

He's by far the best teacher I've ever had, and maybe the smartest man I've ever met. He is almost too accommodating, you never have to worry about losing a grade just because something is late, he'll always make arrangements for you.
