Comment:
Robert is an incredible and very knowledgeable lecturer. He is clearly very passionate about the topics he covers and always is fun to listen too. Though there are quite a few books in this class, all of them discussed in lectures to ensure we are prepared for tests. An excellent prof and would definitely take his courses again if I had the chance!

Comment:
Filled in at U of T as history prof. He is narcissistic which he admitted to the class on our first day. Very intelligent. Does not stay on topic at all and spoke a lot about himself rather than the topics on the syllabus. Of the 5 books we used for the class 3 were his.

Comment:
The consummate academic, RJVP is a fair grader and impassioned lecturer. Though not obvious at first, he is devoted to his students and colleagues and is especially supportive of those who engage in his class. You'll remember material from his course and be compelled to stay in touch long after graduating. This is a professor with lasting impact.

We're all slowly making Van Pelt a millionaire by buying his book. And it's a good book. Challenge the way you think about ethics, values, and your own mores. Easily the most underrated professor at this school. By the way, Van Pelt, the name of that battlecruiser was "Prince Eugen". See? He makes you smarter.

Definitely my favourite Ico prof. I didn't necessarily think he was that good during the course, but afterwards I realized we were pretty lucky to have him. He ego is pretty big, but I think it probably should be...he's a very smart guy.
