    PHIL2642 Critical Thinking

    Just stumbled upon this, seems to be a hidden gem tucked away in the later pages of the handbook...

    Anyone taken up this unit? Any reason why a first year with no previous experience of Philopsophy shouldn't take it?

    I'm almost sold...

    I can think of one reason. Because Nick Smith was the second worst first year Philosophy lecturer I had.

    Other than that, can't see why not.

    Surprisingly, no. I found David Macarthur to be the worst, but maybe that was because he was teaching aesthetics (which I despise)

    Yes!!! Definatley! I loved DBM so much, he made Philosophy worthwhile and interesting. I would have continued with that if I was doing an Arts degree.

    Tim Rayner wasn't too bad - I had him for Political Philosophy (the Society component of PHIL 1010) and he was good enough to make me stay on with it.

    DBM is a legend. Like Susan, I probably would have done some kind of metaphysics unit if my degree allowed it.
