Philosophy for AS and A2 Summary


Philosophy for AS and A2 by Edited by Elizabeth Burns

Philosophy for AS and A2 is the definitive textbook for students of Advanced Subsidiary or Advanced Level philosophy courses, structured directly around the specification of the AQA. Following a lively foreword by Nigel Warburton, author of Philosophy: The Basics, a team of experienced teachers devote a chapter each to the six themes covered by the syllabus:

Each of the chapters include helpful student-friendly features.

  • a list of key concepts, to introduce students to the topic
  • bite-size sections corresponding to the syllabus topics
  • actual exam questions from previous years
  • suggested discussion questions to promote debate
  • text-boxes with helpful summaries, case-studies and examples
  • an annotated further-reading list directing students towards the best articles, books and websites
  • a comprehensive glossary, providing a handy reference point

There is a final chapter on essay writing and exam preparation, designed to help students get to grips with the examination board requirements.

Philosophy for AS and A2 is written by a team of expert teachers based at Heythrop College - part of the University of London - which specializes in teaching philosophy and theology.
