No, while this is a philosophy class, these are not philosophy students.
Only one or two of the 40 in each class has taken any philosophy at all.
Rick, philosophy students in my experience tend to be more widely and
better educated than other humanities/social science students. They also
score better on tests (just as engineering students tend to score higher on
tests -- including language skills -- than other science students).
