Ahh, philosophy class. For those who have braved the icy lecture halls speckled with the seemingly all-knowing international students, these lec-seminars seem to bring out the most in CU students. There are plenty of things that happen all too frequently; take a shot when………….
The professor asks for a simple example of anything and someone brings up God.
Someone asks a completely off topic question to insert knowledge from another philosophy class; bonus points if this happens in History of Phil I or II.
Someone misuses the term metaphysical.
Someone proposes an extremely convoluted thought experiment that actually makes the concept even harder to understand.
The TA shit talks the way the professor explained something in recitation (not exclusive to philosophy, but in one bwogger’s experience this happens a lot in philosophy).
You are triggered by any reference to logic.
You explain to your parents that it is, in fact, possible for Philosophy majors to find jobs after graduating.
