AS Philosophy

Showing 1 to 6 of 6

There seems to be no discussions on AS philosophy so thought I'd start one.

For unit 1 I did Persons and Reason & Experience, and for unit 2 I'm doing Tolerance and the Value of Art. Is anyone else doing these topics? I'm finding it difficult to know HOW to revise....

Thanks

..dno if it helps bt for each topic in each section..i found it usful to make cuecards and write on each 1 the different topics, then on the other side the key philosophers and a few of thei main points on that topic and a few strengths and weaknesses..

..hope this has helped

I'm doing the same unit 1 as you, I find it easier to study the philosopher's involve with their reference to both Persons and Reason and Experience E.g..

Hume is...

1. linked with persons because he says we are just bundles of perceptions and that animals are persons because they show some signs of intelligence. 

2. He is relevant for reason and experience because he says that complex ideas that don't exist such as a unicorn are derived from combining simple ideas of a horse and a horn.

Find it easier to study the philosophers as a whole rather than two separate units.

Hope this helps...GOOD LUCK!!
