    Hey. I'm doing PHIL3 tomorrow and my teacher said that in Moral Philosophy a question will come up on Moral Truths and one on Moral Decisions. I looked back at the two past papers available and that seems to be the case. But it doesn't say it anyway on the specification so I was just wondering if anyone know if that's a fact orrr if it was just my teacher basing it off the past papers?

    Good luck everyone btw!

    I don't think it's necessarily a fact? They probably could ask two meta ethics questions because that section of the spec is broken into two separate bits- moral truth and denial of moral truth. But if previous exams are anything to go by then yes there should be a normative ethics one I think it will be Kant on a practical problem

    I'm still awaiting on an announcement from AQA on BBC News tomorrow morning:

    "All Philosophy exams have been cancelled on the grounds that they're a pile of w*nk. All candidates will be given an A grade for even attempting to read our textbooks."

    Wishful thinking...ha...

    Because its horrible haha!

    I'm doing it, expecting a question on dualism or a sort of general one on mental states etc. Then just talk substance dualism, reductionist etc

    Agreed! Although unfortunately my school doesn't give us an option and we have to do it. A dualism question would be very very nice, much rather that than anything on functionalism or behaviourism

    Same here, and like I just said, dualism would be great for me!

    It's the argument that asks if God caused existence/the universe/etc, who caused God...and then who caused that God. The argument would go on forever, an infinite regress. (In basic)

    I'd personally contrast utilitarian rights (Mill/Bentham/Singer) with natural rights (Locke/Gewirth), evaluating as I went along, but that'd be a mean essay.

    Ok thanks, I get it now in simple terms..The notes I had seemed complicated
    Also what what be the problems with the concept of infinity? that there has to be an end at some point?
