Comment:
Paul is hilarious and he takes feedback and criticism on his ideas very well. My social science professors should really take his class, after the initial shock and horror, they could really learn something. Take Paul's class! You will feel challenged, but you won't regret it! I even decided to minor in philosophy since taking his class

Comment:
Paul thinks he's the best prof at UofL. However, the truth is something different. This man couldn't philosophize his way out of a wet paper bag. By his own description he is an atheist, so I'm not sure why anyone would take a Phil of Religion class with him. Big surprise that this vindictive man wrote a paper on "A Defense of Terrorism".

Comment:
Paul doesn't use moodle. It is frusterating enough to be online but he takes all his assignments and sends them out through moodle. He doesn't give any warning and just sends an email with an assignment that "due tomorrow!" He's also lost 3 of my assignments somehow. Not a class for me.

Comment:
His classes are almost always 20% weekly response questions, two papers and a take home final exam. The take home final exam is usually 1000 words in length, you'll finish this class before your others so it gives you time on exam break. if you have a tough semester add a Paul class into the mix!

Paul is a straight up homie. If you didn't take him in your degree you failed as a student. Best lectures I have ever sat through and keeps the students entertained. A devils advocate that makes you learn how to argue. If you are interested in Law, I highly recommend taking his classes. Few assignments and fair grading!

I took game theory thinking it was something totally different. Good thing I did because Paul is fantastic! The funniest prof you'll ever meet and grades very fairly and wants everyone to succeed, even if they aren't philosophers. (Before you take his class ask yourself if you get triggered easily -If yes, register in a management course, not this)

Paul is an excellent prof who has a real interest in the subject matter. I would recommend attending lectures both to help your grades, and they are interesting. There is a fair bit of reading so be prepared for it.

If you are easily offended, don't take Paul's class. He definitely utilizes tenure! I found his essay grading a little bit harsh but overall a funny guy. Hates management students.

Paul has a very unique teaching style, he will challenge your ways of thinking and ensure that you are able to articulate your point of view. No matter what you say, Paul will play the Devil's Advocate, and he's not one to be bound by political correctness, so if you're easily offended you'd probably prefer someone else.

Didn't get to experience much of his class this semester due to schedule constraints, but would absolutely sign up for another one of his in a heartbeat if the situation arises. Excellent sense of humour, ready for debate, intellectual and seemingly at home on any topic. Even after only a small sampling of his teaching, I would highly recommend.

Paul is an amazing professor, who you can really tell loves what he does. The class is very reading heavy, so if you don't like to do the readings don't take the class. I would 100% take a class from him again, he is the reason I switched my minor to philosophy.
