It sure seems to count in the real world!
Pretty sure it was an Intro class. One of those core requirements of underclassmen.
I more remember Doc Penn. He was a character. Always running his hand through his hair. He had quite a mop top. I remember on a test comparing a particular philosophical argument to a quote from Popeye. "I am what I am and that's all that I am". He didn't get it. Nor did he appreciate it LOL.
The eccentric ones don't always have the sense of humor you'd think they would.
One formal class as an undergraduate (I was 17 at the time). At least it was an honors section. Lots of Kierkkegard. A course in formal logic in the speech department, and Boolean algebra in the math department. Covered the Philosophical Radicals in a British history course. Have been a voracious reader and bibliophile since eighth grade and largely acquired a traditional liberal education through independent reading.
I have a bachelor's degree in Philosophy. Declared as a Pol Sci major, eventually took a few Philosophy electives and liked it. So, in addition to my degree program (and working 3 part-time jobs, training for athletics 6+hrs/day, and of course chasing girls) I took extra courses until, at the end of 4 years, I had enough credits for two full BA degrees.
What bullshit do you feel compelled to post this time?
Given that I am alone most of the time, I do have the time to ponder it. But no, I haven't studied it formally.
Religion and philosophy were required at the Catholic University Daddy paid for, so I took 2 philosophy and one religion. And an Ethics, to boot.
My first hubby had a philosophy course from a professional jazz musician and loved that perspective. I can see see where that would be an awesome course.
I found religion trite and boring but enjoyed philosophy and found ethics useful in my career as an educator.

Let's see some proof.
