You won't be examined on the content for AS, however to get higher marks candidates are encouraged to make synoptic links back to AS
e.g.) ...was influenced by Kant and his concept of universalising a maxim which was seen in one of Kant's postulates of practical reason

There's a website called Jake does revision which is really good and concise. It explains things in easier terms so you understand it better. This guy wrote amazing notes. Check it out online - just type in AS/A2 (topic name) jake does revision

Subjective means opinion based and your own view / preference of things - it's linked with relativism as it takes into account the circumstances and consequences of an action

Objective, on the other hand, means factual - it is right or wrong - there is an definite answer and it is not based on human feeling or assumption. It is linked with absolutism as it doesn't take into account circumstances or consequences - it is deontological meaning purely right or wrong regardless of the circumstances or consequences

Hope that helps
