    Ah thanks loads for the advice! Do you reckon I'll be able to understand all the ideas if I only read the last chapter? Any time saving tips like that are really appreciated though, got to do the whole thing and revise it in 10 days
    I've made notes on the first three chapters with all the key points and a few quotations if that would be any use? I'm yet to finish taking notes on the last two chapters, but the final chapter is quite short and gives lots of examples so it's worth a quick read

    At the risk of sounding like an idiot.. Do we have to read whatever book we're studying for Unit 4? I'm self-teaching and I don't know if I should just crack on with the analysis of the book from Lacewing, or actually read On Liberty first. Cheers.

    Also, I'm sure you all did well! I (selflessly) dragged down the pass mark with an abysmal couple of essays :P
    Should read them both at the same time. Don't know the structure of Lacewing's book, but if you read a chapter of On Liberty then read the explanation of that chapter in Lacewing's book that'll help a lot. Then slowly work your way through the whole book.
    And don't worry if you find it hard to understand the language at first, you'll get used to it.

    Woo, another person who both answered the question I did, and vaguely answered it in the same way as me! Well I talked about Betham and Mill, but then went on some long tangent explaining exactly why natural rights don't exist as they're in conflict with the naturalism in utilitarianism.

    Why worried me is that you went into so many other political theories! I must have thought that I was answering the moral question or something silly like that... because I brought up the is/ought gap afterwards instead of something more sensible like Marx or Locke. But that could still be applied politically right?
    Yeah I mentioned the is/ought gap in relation to Hart. But I wouldn't worry about it if you brought Moral philosophy into the essay. In fact, you get marks for synoptic writing (talking about aspects of the other part of the course)

    Yh i am, should be alright though, you can practically prepare your whole essay in advance lol, it's either gonna be about democracy, individual development, harm principle or freedom of thought nd expression. nd we get a choice so i don't need to revise individual development and i'm fine lol
    also i've done 2 really extensive essays for the mill side so for revision i literally just have to read my essays and jsut try and remember as much as possible.

    what about you? how are you feeling about mill?
    Well I read On Liberty a while back, pretty sure I know the foundations of it. Gonna be revising it quite a bit so should be alright. Only problem is that I've got 2 economic exams for the day before and after it. :woo:

    That would probably work out roughly as a D for that exam? If you did quite well that is, I think.

    I suppose you could get marks if you've evaluating why a physical account would work better than substance dualism for example? I'm not too sure if you didn't answer the question, but if it was well written and you evaluated well, then you could pick up some marks? How do you think you did on the second question?

    There's a lot of emphasis placed on evaluation and how you argue your points; how you reach your conclusion basically. You always have another chance with next Thursday's exam I did exactly the same questions as you Did quite like the miracles question, though my friend told me than I got one argument incorrect, but hopefully that's only because I babbled when I eplained it to him! Tried to criticise eliminative materialism, but waffled, so am not hoping for many marks there Overall not as bad as I was expecting, but could have been better.. :woo:
