    Hi, does anyone have any advice on how to do AO2 for Westphal passages? It seems difficult considering the lack of argument?

    I'm trying to do one on the Post-Kantian section - "in the final three books..." and the next paragraph.

    Thanks

    Hi. I'm revising Westphal right now and I'm stuck on part B. Does anyone have any suggestions about why they agree/disagree with different aspects of the text and what the implications would be and why? Or know a good resource where I can have a look? Thanks!

    Well, the question is "do you agree with the ideas expressed" so the best thing to do is to see not what Westphal is saying (as he doesn't offer much of an opinion) but what the people he is writing about are saying.

    For example, if you had the Marx / Nietzsche passage, you could talk about whether you agree with them. What would happen if Marx was right about religion? What would society be like? Same with Schleiermacher. Is it really feasible to have a universal religion? What would happen if Christianity is literal truth and we turn our backs on it saying Jesus is simply an archetype?

    Most likely to be Ayer, then secondly Westphal as Donovan came up last year, but it could be any of them really!

    Shame that Wellington College made their resources private…

    What are we all hoping for?

    I'd like a nice Westphal passage! Failing that - Ayer

    If Donovan came up again, he'd be used 4 TIMES more than Ayer, and twice as much as Westphal. Honestly if it's not Ayer I don't see why they've included him ( he's been once and only once)
