Varzi, Achille Silver_nugget
[PHIL G4137] Non-Classical Logic

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Professor Varzi is an ideal teacher--he is brilliant in his field, he teaches it extremely clearly so that people new to the subject can learn easily, he is extremely friendly and approachable. The only negative comment that I might give about this class was that it could have taught more of the strictly formal uses of non-classical logic. Most of the formal training was in the mid-term and final exam. The assignments were not difficult, but it would have been more informative if we went over lots of proofs in class. And, though this was not necessarily the subject of the class, I would have been very interested to learn some metatheory about the logics that we studied.

Workload:

Several reading assignments, never tested in any way. Two mid-terms and a final, all of them reasonably in-between easy and difficult.
