What were your favorite philosophy courses at UCLA?


Do you have a good story or two about the department?

I once got stuck in the elevator on my way down from the Philosophy department in 2003.

I remember lying on the elevator floor positioned in an “X” so as to distribute my weight for fear that the elevator would unravel.

Additionally, the emergency button was defective.

I was eventually rescued by some fellow students.
