Philosophy AS/A Level

UPDATED 20161114 12:37:47

Philosophers raise questions about issues that thoughtful people find puzzling. Such issues involve important concerns about the origins of our ideas, the extent of our knowledge and the nature of our values. For example, can we draw conclusions about how things really are from the way they appear to us? Are all of the ideas or concepts we possess derived from sense experience? How do we decide what is and what isn’t a morally right action? Could it ever be morally right to do something that is morally wrong? Can we make sense of the idea of God? Is it rational to believe in God? Could all of my classmates be zombies? How can I know that others have minds? Philosophy is a challenging as well as a satisfying subject and the abilities to think clearly and argue logically are highly regarded both academically and in the world of work. Lessons are thought-provoking and you should be willing to discuss ideas and justify the judgements you make. You will develop your philosophical knowledge and reasoning skills through the study of a number of themes in Philosophy. This will involve acquiring knowledge about what philosophers have argued and, more importantly, developing your ability to make informed, critical judgements of your own.
