    Just realised that was really long sorry guys with the muddling up they just ignore the name change, they will probably know it was just exam stress. There's that many thinkers and words you can talk about so don't worry about it (: If people do other stuff to you it means the examiner doesn't have to read the same criticism (:

    Initially I thought it went well, but thinking back on it I don't think I done as well as I could have.

    I knew the content but I feel like I didn't showcase it all in my answers due to bad time management. I went through a few points but in depth, rather than covering the whole spectrum.

    For philosophy I did something similar and only mentioned the falsification and the verification principles...I think perhaps they will have only have expected us to focus on a couple of theories, because otherwise that question encompassed the entirety of the religious language section.
    Hopefully what we wrote was substantial enough to get an A

    There was just so much to say in such little time. If I didn't get carried away with the Falsification Principle then I would've been able to talk about analogy or something else.

    I did the exact same questions as you for both papers! But I didn't put anything in about an afterlife for the soul, :/ but bought in religious experience, also a bit on Demicritus and 'soul atoms' for the materialist side. nothing about symbol, analogy or myth for language (though i contemplated analogy, i couldn't thing how to get it in there!). I banged on about verification, falsification + the garden analogy (both Flew's and Wisdoms), then Wittgenstein and language games, which seemed to take up like 6 pages!

    I was sick of writing by the time it got to ethics, though let out a cheeky grin when i twigged that one of the questions was free will and determinism, which i'd practised at the weekend! Hoo-rah! Or, boo/hurrah Oh god i'm so sad.

    Anyway, it sounds like you absolutely MERKED it!
    i was soo happy ! ohh the garden thing i was going to mention that but there's just soo much you could say ! i only managed to briefly mention language games, just a short definition and that it rendered religious language meaningless as you can't distinguish between atheism and theism, but its good because you can't criticise another persons 'language game', so in that sense it's meaningful ! sounds like you have loads of great stuff

    hahaa well i nearly did a little 'dance' when i saw free will was up... but i managed to control myself :P lmao, ethics banter, gotta love it !

    I managed to sneak in a bit of Heidegger and Kierkegaard, I was quite proud :P

    I assume your doing philosophy at uni by your sig?
    *high five* I mentioned Kierkegaard too managed to cheekily slip him into the religious language question.
    Which questions did you answer?

    I feel like I tried to do both and failed at both, and it'd be hilarious if it wasn't so distressing how I quickly I've gone from "Well, that went okay" to OH GOD FAILED EVERYTHING I HATE THIS SUBJECT.

    Hahahhaa omg that's exactly how I feel. I went from 'oh that was such a good exam' to 'omg what the hell I didn't even talk about XYZ'

    Maybe we're just looking for something to worry about? I dunno but I feel like I went into too much depth without covering enough scope. I'll probably be penalised for it

    I like to think it's just that because I've covered so much revising that I'm automatically going to feel that I haven't covered enough, but I really don't know, and now I'm just hoping I'll get a B overall and hope for the best for my other subjects. I just wish there wasn't so much pressure on these exams. (Also I am totally jealous of people that do Philosophy or Ethics in January.)

    i feel the same it went well but i could have done better on the religious language i stuck to verification and falsification and then language games bliks and all that but never touched analogy or symbol or via negative i could have said so much more and pushed the grade up. But i guess thats what happens with essay exams

    did someone answer Q4 abt visions?? what did everyone write on that question?? im just wondering if its right to put sociological challenge as well?! it is right to say sociological explanation, into some extent is a scientific explanation??
    Yeah I talked about sociological challenges from marx, psychological and psychological challenges mainly, as these are somewhat scientific. Did you write specifically about visions or include James criteria at all?

    I got 100

    Not sure how, but it means that I only need 80 ums in philosophy to get an A* so hopefully I got that! I only need AAA for uni though so im not too bothered. Five people in my class got 100 ums in ethics actually...not sure what happened!

    How about you?
