Student Comments

"This is one of the best classes I've taken during my four years here. It was intellectually stimulating but not confusing, and applicable to my own personal life and moral development. I enjoyed attending lectures, and it was so obvious that Professor Longenecker cared a lot about his students. The visual components of the powerpoint slides made the material so much easier to sort out (different colors/themes for different philosophers/schools of thought), and I feel like I have a really good grasp on this material. Before I thought philosophy was too abstract and complex, but now I'm really intrigued by it and hope to study it more on my own."


"Honestly, your energy, enthusiasm, and dedication to this class were absolutely wonderful. I have never had a professor who put so much work into making powerpoints that were easy to follow, helpful for understanding

difficult or complex topics ... engaging, fun, humorous, and just all around wonderful."


"The forum posts/discussions were great to help make sense of and keep up with the readings. Debates provided fantastic opportunities to sort of direct one's own learning and practice tackling philosophical arguments. The lectures were extremely well-presented, and offered much-needed clarity on the philosophical topics covered."


"His class is super organized and well laid out. He makes a relatively complex and boring subject bearable and interesting. Honestly, I was dreading this class, but in the end, Prof Longenecker made it great. Glad I took it."


"His slideshows were awesome--he put together awesome visuals which really illustrated the points he was making in the lecture--it made studying so much easier because when I saw the diagram it triggered everything he spoke about! He is also the most genuine person I've ever been taught by--a course in Ethics taught by such a good person--a pretty cool experience :)"


"Professor Longenecker is one of the best professors I have had at Notre Dame. It is evident how much effort he puts into each lecture and assignment. I assumed due to the material that this class would be boring but Professor Longenecker makes his lectures engaging and interesting with mixed media."
