Hi, I just wrote a book that will help you, it's called "How to write any essay and get a top mark! Or How to Hack the Religious Studies, Ethics or Philosophy A-level (& Politics and Other Essay) Exams…and get an A*!" For AQA, OCR, and Edexcel, New and Old courses! Unit/Course/Specification codes: 7061, 7062, 2060, 7171, 7172, 2175, H172, H572, H173, H573, 8RS01, 9RS01, 8RS0, 9RS0 and many more! Available on Amazon and all major outlets!
"This is such a useful book for all students of A level Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethics. The style is student friendly and accessible, and the author brings to it his experience as a teacher and examiner. The highly practical approach is exactly what students need to negotiate the minefield of exam preparation and practice equipped with straightforward, realistic advice." Sarah K Tyler

I'm doing an EPQ on something along the lines of 'To What Extent Can Qualia Can Explain Conscious Experience', and would be evaluating how each of the main Philosophers who believe in it have structured their arguments, following by the same for the critics of the theory. I was thinking I could then conclude by questioning whether our inability to describe Qualia is just a weakness in our language, or something we could learn to develop over time.
Would anyone have any advice on how to further structure my EPQ, because I can't really believe that that is going to be enough to have a varied essay. I assume that just doing what is essentially an extended 'For and Against' type of essay with an evaluated question at the end isn't really enough. I realise it is a very niche area, but if anyone has some tips, it'd be much appreciated! Thanks.
