I typically teach three courses every year:
For my fourth course, I try to switch between (1) classes for first and second year students, such as Problems of Philosophy (Phil 1) or ID-1, and (2) classes for juniors and seniors, such as the expansively titled “Topics in the Philosophy of Law, and Law and Society” (Phil 185b) or “Topics in Social and Political Philosophy” (Phil 185s).
The titles and descriptions are deliberately broad. That way we can put a variety of different topics under the same number without having to go to the curriculum committee for approval. Thus, “Topics in Social and Political Philosophy” can be human rights or Hobbes, “Topics in the Philosophy of Law” can be punishment or privacy, and so on.
I am a member of the Department of Philosophy and the program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Pomona College. Before coming to Pomona, I taught at McGill, Stanford, and the University of Chicago.
