Passing the course on philosophy

Some students were worried about the test coming up. The idea of the test is not to measure the capacity to remember, because the aim of the course is not to memorize the contents of the book. The test measures the structures and versatility of thinking (knowledge is needed, too). The abilities that are tested can be proven otherwise as well. You can negotiate alternative ways for passing the exam. Yet most students take the final exam. An alternative is a portfolio and an oral exam. In the final exam you can also choose an alternative, where you can use the text book (you must make your choice in advance). Please contact me and present your wishes well in advance before the final exam.
