Evaluation Comments for Bates S

  1. No Comment
  2. Bates is a nice guy, but by lord, this class is boring! It has the potential of being an extremely interesting course, but Bates is so incredibly dull- it is difficult to stay awake in his class. There are two big papers, one final exam, and at least 4 pop quizzes throughout the semester. I wouldn't recommend this class.
  3. This is really unfortunate because the material and ideas behind the course are so interesting that I stuck with it even though Professor Bates' drone has your mind wandering even when you try to pay attention. He also does not like when you disagree with him on his set-in-stone ideas about philosophy. And the pop-quizzes are ridiculous, the amount of material he expects you to cover along with his impossible to stay awake lectures make it impossible to even remember where he might have pulled a question from. Read the materials if you have the interest, otherwise don't take this course.
