A,level subject help !?!?!?!Watch
Im planning on taking
Maths, Bio, Chem, ethi and phil/phil
Philosophy (as opposed to Ethics & Philosophy) will focus more on things like Epistemology (the theory of knowledge) and Metaphysics (issues like free will existing beyond the physical world). Philosophy will ask more of the fundamental questions of the world whilst Ethics & Philosophy will be geared more towards Moral Philosophy which surrounds human behavior. There will certainly be crossovers, but to decide which subject is for you, you really just have to ask yourself if you're more interested in questions like 'is it morally right to do x' or 'am I the the only thing that exists'. Both are great though, so I don't think you can go too far wrong.
I hope this helps.
The ethics side to my A-Level included studying things like Kantian Ethics, Virtue Ethics and Utilitarianism. If you're unsure whether ethics and moral philosophy are for you, have a read about utilitarianism as it's a really good starting point and you'll know very quickly whether it strikes your interest or not.
