    Hi guys I was wondering if anyone of you have any notes on peter singers preference utilitarianism and mills because I cant find much info on him in the books and we only touched on it in class but tbh I think utilitarianism may not come up this year because It has come up 3 times in a row now but its best to revise it just in case

    In the problem of evil topic!!
    I love that topic! Religion and science has so much content, there's barely any popular philosophers but so many astronomers etc.

    I'm really busy with my revision so I don't have time to look through all my documents, but this is all the work I have on these subjects.

    This is the revision my teacher made for our class. I have already made my revision so I don't need it but if you're struggling feel free to do whatever to it.

    Does anyone have any tips on writing the exam questions under timed conditions?
    For part A I introduce the question by using background like the first philosopher to initially start the argument, or general information about the topic e.g. a posteriori, inductive etc. Then I always write what the question initially asks because if you run out of time, you have definitely answered the question e.g. 'Explain Freud's moral argument' talk about Freud, then bring in Kant etc.
    For part B, the best way to get full marks is to use philosophers theories, not just general knowledge. And always put in 'a strength/weakness of this', the question doesn't want knowledge, it wants you to argue. I always add in my own opinion in the conclusion as it shows you have a definite answer e.g. In my opinion Freud's moral argument is more successful than Kant's due to scientific evidence, and clear case studies.
    Does that help?

    Both the problem of evil and Judeo-Christian God came up in June 2015

    I think it'll be ontological as cosmological has come up so much
    However, the radio debate between Russell and Copleston (however you spell his name) is due to come up

    Yes I think so too, but my philosophy teacher reckons that Judeo Christian God and Problem of Evil will come up again as they were done badly, so examiners like to ask questions that have been answered badly

    Another reason to not focus on Aristotle is that there was a set of questions about just him last year, 24 marker on the 4 causes and 10 marker on the prime mover. So I'm guessing it wouldn't come up two years in a row

    What are we thinking is likely to come up on the OCR and Ethics AS papers this year? My teacher has mentioned that Plato hasn't come up for a few years and reckons it might be the cave analogy, and also she has a hunch on war and peace. I know it's impossible to know for sure, but does anyone have any different ideas?
    Thankyou in advance
