Hello,
I have a philosophy essay due to hand in online in a few and i'd be most grateful for any help.

How would I go about structuring:
AO1 essay "Explain Hume's criticisms of cosmological arguments."

AO2 essay "Hume's criticisms of the cosmological argument do not succeed. Discuss."

Could anyone give me the sort of paragraph structure I should be following? Thank you so very much.

Hi, my advice for an AO2 answer is:

First paragraph:
- whether you agree/disagree with the statement and 1 reason why

Second paragraph
- another reason why you agree/disagree

Third paragraph
- A further reason why you agree/disagree

Fourth paragraph
- A reason why someone would disagree with your opinion and then OVERCOME their argument

Fifth paragraph
- Another reason why someone would disagree with your opinion + overcome

Conclusion
- A final reason why you agree/disagree with the statement (leave your best point until last)

My teacher gave us this structure and it's how you get 10/10. Good luck!

For the AO1, you would have to bring up the criticisms in separate paragraphs and explain them thoroughly in order to get the marks. Use the PER structure. Propose a point, Explain the point in detail, Relate it back to the question.
