    Hmm not entirely sure how that went. Loved the mind questions and reaaallly disliked the religion questions. I think it went okay but I know I lacked illustration and probably evaluation!

    Ah well, just Plato to go now!!

    If anyone is interested I've made a couple of revision videos on Plato's similes. I'm not sure if I'm going to do more but I might: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNvY9p97fsKC4-OZ5aqFqzPmj8fgo94mh

    Hey guys, would anyone be kind enough to PMAIL me their Phil of Religion notes? And I don't know which other section to do with PHIL3. I am doing Hume for PHIL4 so I would prefer one that compliments him. Would this be Metaphysics/Epistemology or Philosophy of Mind or something else?
    still, any help please? or Pmail me if you can, sorry to be a fuss but I need advice on what would be best

    Just to clarify, the question in moral 'assess the view that it is possible to have knowledge of moral truth' was that asking us to debate that even though moral truth exist its impossible or was that asking us to debate whether moral truth exists or not?

    Not the best it could have been, did the human nature question for political and the moral truth question for morality, I think morality went great but I think the political one could have gone better - not a ridiculous amount of evaluation for the ideologies really in contrast with things like rights and justice.
    I also did the human nature question! We were never taught the nation states topic, so it would have been silly to have tried to answer that one I thought it was quite a nice question, but as you say it's quite hard to get a lot of evaluation in there, so I'm not sure if my answer was that satisfactory :s

    for q8 the moral one on practical issue and how you would use a moral theory. I assessed like how useful utilitarianism, virtue ethics and deontology were for animal ethics. eg. conflicting duties, problems and strengths of their practical apllication. is this the right approach?

    We were taught it very briefly but I didn't revise it as I felt like we didn't have enough content to do an essay on it, which is a shame as I like rights - would have preferred a straight rights question. I need an A so I'm a little worried, hopefully it'll be fine though! I can drop to 73% at A2 and still get an A overall as I got 87% at AS.

    omg, i interpreted it to me, moral truth exists and it is possible to know what it is, then counted it with that even if moral truth exist it is not possible to know what it is. Im a bit worried now :\

    Same, I did Utilitarianism for abortion because it said one or more, i just focused on one because I find I can go more in depth that way

    I wrote about deontology and abortion but brought in the other two theories to show how the deontological response was either good/bad! I think it worded it to trip us up like asking for one or more but I'd rather go into one in detail !

    Precisely, it was essentially a non specific meta-ethics question. If something doesn't exist it obviously can't be known, if it does it's potentially possible. You only had to argue for and against. I went the route of doing all 3 conceptions (God independent transcendental, natural/empirical, relational), then countering each but linking them. It went

    -Plato's forms
    -Third man argument
    -Mill's utility
    -Is ought gap
    -Relational properties
    -Primary and secondary qualities/Emotivism

    Again, there are loads of routes you could have gone with this question. They were pretty vague.

    I know, I found it a very strange question - why would they want some candidates to go into one and others to go into more than one? Oh well, I never attempt to understand the mentality of AQA

    I just mentioned Locke's Hobbes' and Rousseau's concept of the state of nature plus Anarchists' and Feminists' criticism of political authority, along with Marxists'.

    Love the videos, more would be useful! One thing though, are you sure the captain in the simile of ship ship is the ruler? We've been taught the captain represents the masses while the crew represent politicians?
    Hmm... I can see where you're coming from. I think the captain can be seen as either; when you look at it before the crew take over the ship the captain would be the citizens, yes, but afterward it is whomever holds power.
    In Athens at the time it was direct democracy so anyone (any 'citizen', that is!) could be a 'politician'... if that makes sense?? So maybe that's why you've been taught it that way?
