    I'm praying that Plato's theory of the forms will come up, along with the ontological arugment! Maybe the examiners will be nice and give us easy questions, seeing as it's the spec's last year lol. What about you? Which topics are you hoping will come up?
    Haha I'm hoping they are nice too! I'm hoping for Plato, Ontological and maybe Problem of Evil. Really hoping that religion and science doesn't come up haha

    Me too! I'm not revising it as I know I couldn't write about it in the exam and I'm feel okay with Plato, problem of evil, cosmological and ontological but I'm struggling to revise the others! How about you? and how are you feeling about ethics?

    Ugh don't even talk about ethics. I know this is sounds really unprofessional but my ethics teacher has been sooooooo sh1t. Literally, the highest in my class is like a D. She doesn't teach us anything! revising ethics will be sooo stressful.

    Bad teachers are so annoying my RS teachers takes 5 months to return our essays to us and he spends more time talking about his life then anything else. I'm praying Plato comes up too.

    That's such a shame as Aristotle's such a straight forward topic. :/
    I hear that Plato is likely to come up though. However, OCR could just be awkward and diverge from the pattern.

    HI guys - in relation to earlier when someone said that kants challenges of the ontological argument are supposed to come up, how are you meant to write 25 marks about that?? I know he does say a significant amount but I would usually associate a question like that with a part b. thanks, and good luck!

    jonahfromtonga haha - I hate that show. I've never practiced a question like that but I would go about it as follows:

    Intro - Relevant information about the two philosophers.

    - Explain Anselm's ontological argument and how Descartes developed it.

    - Explain Kant's criticisms. (However, I only know two, not sure if there are more).

    Conclusion - Outlining how Kant did believe in God and has his own moral argument which can present why he believed there was a God.

    Somebody please summarize Gaunilo's objections to Anselm's ontological argument. This is really urgent because I wan't to move on to my next phase of revision and cannot find much information on his objections.

    I've just completed all my notes for Ancient Greek Influences (Plato and Aristotle).

    If anyone is interested in trading notes, let me know. It would be really helpful to compare notes and to see what each one of us may have missed out.



    I also got an A for this overall last year, however, I am resitting this exam in order to get a 90 UMS or above.

    Gaunilo claims that the flaws in Anselm's logic will be made obvious if we were to replace the idea of God with an island. In his book - On Behalf the Fool - he says: "Imagine the most excellent island, understanding the implications of the phrase 'most excellend island' and therefore understanding that this notion exists as a concept".

    Thank you, I know I never mentioned it but I understand this objection thoroughly. To be honest - i don't really understand how his objection about the 'fool' spreading gossip relates to the argument. Do you now how it applies to it?

    No worries. And do you think that we could get a question just on Gaunilo's criticisms?

    For example: Explain Gaunilo's objections to Anselm's ontological argument. (25)

    I can't imagine how they would give us a part a on Gaunilo's criticisms unless it involved explaining Anslem's argument also as otherwise there just isn't enough to write.

    Yeah, I would of thought so. Just wanted to confirm any doubts.
