    Chaos theory goes more with the libertarian view-it is the idea every little thing makes a difference to the overall outcome, and so a preordained destiny is an impossible concept

    Basically says that anything that everything does have small but overall important effects e.g. the flutter of a butterfly's wings could change weather patterns in different parts of the world.

    YES! I finally get it.

    Just to clarify then, for Philosophy:
    Cognitive:
    - Verification Principle
    - Falsification Principle
    - Language Games
    - Via Negativa

    Non-Cognitive:
    - Symbol
    - Myth
    - Analogy

    Ethics:
    Cognitive:
    - Naturalism

    Non-Cognitive:
    - Emotivism
    - Prescriptivism
    - Intuitionism

    Hopefully these are correct!

    Thanks in advance
    Intuitionism is cognitive- it still says you can know what moral statements mean but its through intuition (gut feeling) and not empirical evidence

    Hi everyone,
    I don't wish to throw a spanner in the works at this stage, but has anyone heard of 'Wittgenstein's Picture Theory' in class?
    It was on a list of essay questions from my Philosophy teacher (I haven't had chance to see him to ask if we need to know it)
    It isn't specifically mentioned on the Syllabus (Though it just says 'Wittgenstein' rather than 'Language Games' - all I've done is Language Games, and there's no mention of Picture theory in the OCR giant revision guide, but I was just wondering if we can rule it out by lots of studentroomers saying 'no, never heard of it'...

    Good luck everyone! We're all terrified, but it'll be over soon

    I've now reached the point where I want to cry - so

    Anyone out there feeling the same. I say: "OCR RS Solidarity" and something along the lines of "All for one and one for all"
    This thread though is amazing. The plans and help people have put up are so helpful, especially now in my panicked mind!
    See ya in the exam hall tomorrow guys- I'll be thinking about you...and Wittgenstein. Damn he looks good in black and white.
    Anyway.
    Enjoy!

    with regards to the environment/business and sexual ethics, most questions that seem to come up are in relation to a specific ethic (e.g natural law). 35 marks seems a lot for something that sounds very specific. So, i guess you'd be comparing the specific ethic to the others? and be filling general information about the subject in too (e.g RCs don't like homosexuality..)

    am i on the right lines?

    thanks everyone, feel part of a unit in this thread!

    I would do so, yeah, but I guess it depends on the question. As long as you show knowledge that you make relevant and use it to criticise/support, I think that's all they're looking for and can take it in whatever direction you like really

    personally, i take the view that anyone who makes a philosophy pun at this stressful time is a bit of a Kant.

    Can anyone give me a scholar (apart from Aquinas) who agrees with a Boethian perspective that God's omniscience is consistent with free will?

    What did Aquinas actually say to agree with Boethius?

    Covered all topics except parts of nature of God, and sexual ethics. But I have probably forgotten stuff I learnt yesterday so will need to go back over the other topics
    I've missed out nature of God aswell... hope we've made the right decision - getting a bit worried now
