false consciousness(marx), disenchantment(weber), and solidarity(durkheim). all in the form of andy warhol. BRILLIANT. walk away from class with these concepts, and you will excel in the REST your sociology courses. i recommend taking this class as early as you can if you plan to major in the field. this is a once in a lifetime professor so be sure to attend this class and again, walk away with the aforementioned concepts. never, EVER boring. thank you professor sherwood =)
Professor Sherwood is amazing. When I saw that I had to read "The Philosophy of Andy Warhol," I first thought this class was going to be a joke. Instead, it ended up being one of the most interesting and thought provoking classes I have taken at UCLA. His class is not too hard (2 papers and 1 quiz) and was very interesting. He did, however, get frustrated because the attendance was poor and students did not do the readings, so he ended up giving a pop quiz. It wasn't too hard, he just wanted to know if we knew the basics. So, attend lectures, do the readings, and speak in class. He's very energetic and cares a lot about the opinions of his students. Take him! What other class lets you write papers about The Truman Show and Groundhog Day while relating them to Durkheim, Marx, and Andy Warhol?
Professor Sherwood is my favorite teacher at UCLA. I took Soc 102 with him and I don't think the documentaries and films he showed were irrelevant; they were well-chosen and definitely helped provide another dimension to our learning material. I mean, would you rather have him lecture for 2 hours? Also, he encourages you to apply concepts to real life issues and real people as opposed to just memorizing theories. The readings don't put you to sleep, and aren't too heavy. He is very personable and can remember your name after the first time he meets you. Take this class! It was well worth my time.
