What were your favorite philosophy courses at UCLA?

Shiffrin’s Possibility of Altrusim class

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

I used to work in the office with Betty. Such great times….

Are there any philosophical issues, readings, or topics that have stayed with you since graduation?

I wish I had more time. I’d probably dive deeper into philosophy of law / ethics / political theory / and maybe throw in some Heidegger.

What was your first job or endeavor after UCLA?

I worked as a finance recruiter for a tech company.

What lessons or skills from philosophy do you use in your career?

Logic is a very useful life skill. The most valuable part of my degree was probably just learning how to write clearly and how to effectively move an argument/thesis forward.
