Who is taking this paper? I'm taking it again to boost my UMS so I can get an A* at A-Level.

Suggestions as to what I think will come up:
  • Natural Moral Law
  • Absolutism and Relativism
  • Medical Ethics (Abortion/Embryo Research/Genetic Engineering)
  • War and Peace
How are you all feeling?

You will be fine. I promise. What came up?

Last years questions were about personhood, aristotle, kant and abs/rel, if I remember rightly.

It's kind of hard to explain... you really should know this by now.

With all due respect, it's not my job to tutor you. That's your teacher's job. This is a thread to discuss things. Asking that sort of question at this stage is troubling - it's unlikely the user is to do well if they haven't been practising that for at least a year now. I simply said I don't really know how to explain it because I don't - I just do it. I will try but please don't attempt to be rude about me - it isn't up to me to teach you something you should have already been taught.

I respect that but leaving it until the week of the exam to try and figure it out is lousy of you - you've lost an entire year of practice. I can try and explain it; please select an exam question you'd like me to use in order to explain this.

Explain how a follower of Natural Moral Law might respond to the issues surrounding Genetic Engineering.
  1. Write one sentence foregrounding a minimum of three issues surrounding genetic engineering that are easy to link with Natural Moral Law.
  2. Start by explaining Natural Moral Law, possibly in a paragraph only, and do not evaluate. You lose marks for evaluating the issues/theories/application topic in section (a) questions.
  3. Address each individual issue and comment on how followers of Natural Moral Law would approach such an issue.
  4. Do not give a conclusion.

If you want me to write bits, please ask. I am more than happy to write full explanations of each theory and list all of the key issues surrounding each application topic should you feel that is to be helpful.

Structure is relative to the question asked.
