Philosophy A-Level Part 2

This course delves into some of life’s fundamental questions – about existence, knowledge and ethics. You’ll deepen your understanding of human beings and free will, and consider questions about God’s existence and what knowledge is. This course also improves transferable skills, such as independent studies and the ability to explore and evaluate concepts.

The course contains five lessons that follow on from Part 1:

  1. Metaphysics of God, 1: Arguments for the existence of God (the concept of God, the design argument, the cosmological argument)
  2. Metaphysics of God, 2 (the ontological argument, the problem of evil, religious language)
  3. Metaphysics of Mind 1 (substance dualism, philosophical behaviourism, mind-brain identity theory, eliminative materialism)
  4. Metaphysics of Mind 2 (functionality, property dualism)
