Reviews and tips for PHIL10002

There's definitely quite a few readings, but if you enjoy philosophy, then this shouldn't be a major concern. The topics taught are all quite interesting and span a pretty diverse range of the field. If you're looking for a thought-provoking subject, then this is the one. The only downside I would say is that it is pretty difficult to get a score above 80, and potentially impossible above 90 - I was very interested in philosophy during high school and am fairly decent at writing (47 in VCE English if this means anything here), yet I only obtained a 79 in the subject. When given feedback on our essays, the tutor would say that 70 was the average, with anything above 75 being very good, and 80 being excellent.

I did this as a breadth for my bachelor of science in a sem where my effort was pretty intermittent. I could have engaged more than I did (missed lectures here and there, didn't really do the readings), but despite being a bit of an outsider to philosophy, I found the tutes very engaging and a lot of the ideas presented very interesting. Give it a go!

A very interesting subject that covers a wide range of topics from ethics to epistemology. I personally enjoyed the subject a lot because of the thought-provoking lectures and the perspectives in each of the topics themselves. Though it is somewhat difficult to get an H1 in this subject, one can still do quite well without putting in too much effort.

Lots of readings. Lecturers are mostly nice but I didn't enjoy the parts of the philosophy of science. My tutor wasnt very helpful. He often got side-tracked during discussions and doesn't give helpful feedback on essays.
