The birdiness of this course largely depends on your prior knowledge of philosophy and the specific authors studied in the course. If you are not familiar with philosophy, or not with Continental philosophy, the texts here may strike you as confusing, esoteric and even completely nonsensical(looking at you, Heidegger). The grading was not harsh. Robert was fun in teaching and accommodating.
