Philosophy A Level at Queen Mary's College

Course description

Philosophers raise questions about issues that thoughtful people find puzzling. For example:

* Can you ever be sure about what others are thinking or feeling?
* Are you free to do what you choose to do?
* Are your moral beliefs any better than the next person’s?
* Can you distinguish between experiences of reality and experiences that occur in vivid dreams?

You will study Philosophy in two ways; first, by examining specific issues in the theory of knowledge, political philosophy and the philosophy of mind, and secondly by studying the work of a major philosopher. Both approaches involve asking questions, arguing, trying out ideas and generally wondering whether you can justify the beliefs you have.
