What Every College Student Should Know by Ernie Lepore

Book Description

A comprehensive guide to discovering the best teachers at your school or college and learning everything you can from them. Throughout the book, case studies provide real-life examples of how to put ideas into practice. The writing combination of a professor and student provides readers with both perspectives. You should learn: what resources to check and what questions to ask in selecting an instructor; how to evaluate professors based on the first class sessions; what to look for in a syllabus and grading policies; and the importance of instructor feedback and accessibliity. The authors reveal strategies to maximize your classroom experience, such as: how to identify a professor's teaching style and expectations, and how to adapt to them; and ways to get a teacher to notice you and take an interest in your learning experience. Even the most outgoing students can expect only limited contact with their professors, so the authors also provide tactics to take full advantage of meetings outside of regular class time, such as: how and when to approach an instructor; how to prepare for the meeting; ways to phrase questions to get the answers you need; the benefits of making at least one follow-up visit to teachers after the semester ends; ways to build your relationship and get invaluable feedback; and tips on how to get the best recommendations from professors.

Books By Author Ernie Lepore

Imagination and Convention by Ernie Lepore Imagination and Convention, Paperback (December 2016)

How do hearers manage to understand speakers? And how do speakers manage to shape hearers' understanding? Lepore and Stone show that standard views about the workings of semantics and pragmatics are unsatisfactory. They advance an alternative view which better captures what is going on in linguistic communication.

Liberating Content by Ernie Lepore Liberating Content, Hardback (December 2015)

This volume brings together two influential series of papers by Herman Cappelen and Ernie Lepore on language, communication, and contexts. These are the papers which introduced speech act pluralism and semantic minimalism, and they provide the foundation for one of the most powerful attacks on contextualism in contemporary philosophy.

Meaning, Mind, and Matter by Ernie Lepore Meaning, Mind, and Matter, Hardback (March 2011)

Ernie Lepore and Barry Loewer present a series of papers on three key ideas of contemporary philosophy: that a theory of meaning for a language is best understood as a theory of truth for that language; that thought and language are best understood together via a theory of interpretation; and that the mental is irreducible to the physical.

Donald Davidson by Ernie Lepore Donald Davidson, Paperback (February 2007)

Donald Davidson (1917-2003) was one of the most important philosophers of the late twentieth century. His work on language and the theory of meaning has been particularly influential. This book provides an exposition of his work in this field and of his contributions to philosophy of mind, metaphysics, and epistemology which spring from it.
