It is really unfortunate that two classes meeting requirements for the Philosophy major – Early Modern and Metaphysics – are scheduled at the same time this coming fall. Believe me, we tried to avoid it. But we failed because of the extraordinary pressures on classroom space at the university. Basically, we could have avoided the conflict only by moving one of the classes to late in the day – after 4. Our guess was that this would inconvenience even a greater number of students.

Here’s what to do if you’re in a bind. If you are graduating in spring 2012, take Metaphysics in the fall, and then take Kant and the 19th Century in the spring. If you’re graduating in fall 2011, or for some reason that first idea won’t work for you, then meet with your advisor to see what can be worked out.
