    Hey guys I've got an AS philosophy &I ethics study group up on whatsapp. Currently only two other people in it though. If anyone wants to be in it please DM me name and number! Also If you do choose to be in it please do share resources such as pages from textbook, essays, or anything really (as you'd want other people to do so😊)
    Cheers,
    Rue.

    (I choose whatsapp as we can easily send audio vns to explain things, easily take pics of stuff to send it, etc. It's just so convenient and easy)
    Would it be cool if you add me to this whatsapp group ? DM me?

    Question 1
    a) Explain Plato’s theory of Forms.b) Assess the claim that Plato does not value experience enough.
    This is the last year of this paper, Plato has not been asked since 2013 but Plato’s Forms were not asked about since 2012. Question 2
    a) Explain Anselm’s Ontological Argument.b) Assess Gaunilo’s challenge to Anselm.
    The Ontological Argument was not asked since 2013. St Anselm was not asked since 2010.
    Question 3
    a) Explain Hume’s criticisms of the cosmological argument.b) To what extent was Hume successful in his critique of the cosmological argument?
    The Cosmological Argument was asked in 2014, but Hume’s challenges were not asked since 2011.
    Question 4
    a) Explain the theodicies of both Augustine and Irenaeus.b) ‘There is no solution to the problem of evil and suffering.’ Discuss.
    In 2014 the problem of evil was asked, but the theodicies were not asked since 2013. That question was about both theodicies. As it is the last paper it is likely at least one of the theodicies will be asked, perhaps both.

    Where is the ethics one? I can only find the one you have to pay for

    Hi guys does anyone have a model answer to the June 2009 question: "Explain Aquinas' Cosmological Argument"? As I cannot seem to write anyway near enough sides. Thanks.
    This essay landed me 24/25 - the equivalent of an A. Hope this might be of some help to you

    Hey all, I'm obviously doing the exam as are all you I suspect. I know there isn't one particular method or format, but how do you people tend to lay out your (a + b) questions for both Philosophy & Ethics.

    Thanks, Josh

    I don't think I'm going to revise them. Is that a wise decision, or no? We only covered them briefly so i don't know them too well. However, based on the pattern of exams I think they might come up.

    So you've answered your own question
    You're not going to revise them but you think it's going to come up? Therefore it's not a wise decision
    Revise it, trust me. If it comes up you'll be glad that you went over it

    Also God as a creator may come up or the concept of creatio ex nihilo.

    Thanks, Josh
    My teacher says always aim for about 5 paragraphs for part a), the first one being the introduction. For part b) I use this format when answering (it automatically gets you 6 marks even if it's not done well):
    -for
    -against
    -for
    -therefore ...

    -against
    -for
    -against
    -therefore ...

    -it must not be forgotten that ... (then use something to say either for or against)
    -in conclusion ...
