Philosophy and Ethics A Level at The John Henry Newman RC School
• AS Ethics offers you the opportunity to consider the different
moral concepts and theories associated with moral decision
making, including Natural Law, Utilitarianism, Kantian ethics and
Christian ethical theories. As well as critically evaluating each
approach you also have the opportunity to apply these ethical
theories to the issues of abortion, genetic engineering, euthanasia
and issues relating to war and peace.
• In contrast, AS Philosophy introduces you to Ancient Greek and
Judeo-Christian influences on philosophy before exploring the
traditional arguments for the existence of God along with critical
analysis of the problem of evil and challenges presented to
religious belief by psychology and sociology.
