I did, was so nervous but it ended out ok!

I done episimology on unit 1

Philosophy of religion on unit 2

and Descartes on unit 3

unit 1 went pritty good! Unit 2... was my weakest. bad questions! And unit 3 for sum reason had really good questions (for me) so I found it easy!


Anyone else do it? find it hard/easy?

I didn't do it for A Level, but I just did two degree-level Philosophy exams the other week. Are you planning on taking it any further?

Theory of Knowledge was easy as hell. The only bit that gave me difficulty was to think of a strength for reliablism on the spot.

Theory of Ethics, once again that went well. I shouldn't of revised more, but I swear it went alright.

Descartes; I'm sorry, that was just too easy.

Good stuff.

Off memory... Knowledge was;

1. Name and illustrate two ways we can have a priori knowledge.
2. Name one strength for reliablism.
3. Access the concept that we have knowledge without experience.

Ethics:

1. Name and briefly explain two virtues expected to be found in a virtuous person in virtue ethics.
2. Illustrate and explain two criticisms of deontological ethics.
3. Access whether any form of utilitarianism can ever provide us an adequate accont to what it's like to act morally.

Descartes;

1. With close reference to the text above...

a. What two attributes does Descartes give to the body?
b. What does Descartes compare his mind being lodged into the body as?
c. Explain briefly how Descartes says the body and mind are connected.

2. Illustrate the wax argument and explain two purposes.
3. Access whether Descartes successfully establishes the proof of God.

There's are huge divide between E's and U's and B's and A's. You work hard and do well, or you don't and you do crap. Keep at it, I don't see much difficulty in it at all

EDIT: Also, the syllabus is being cut down to about third/half of the size. I am not joking. AS Philosophy will be piss easy next year. For those who are already doing Philosophy; their theory of knowledge is being cut down to rationalism and empiricialism, they're dropping perception and knowledge. That's how much they're cutting it down by.

EDIT EDIT: With Philosophy, everyone starts out poor. Give it your all, you'll come at a seasoned philosopher ready to take on anything You see yourself improve in philosophy more than any other subject. It's awesome

I don't remember anything from Philosophy last year; those questions seem tough

Although I know the wax arguement says that the more wax in your ears, the more a priori truth will be known to you
