Religious Studies A-Level Part 2

This course explores a variety of perspectives on religion and its impact on people’s behaviour, communities and cultures.

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

  1. Religious Language (Analogy and Symbol, Verification and Falsification, Language Game)
  2. Belief and Unbelief (Critiques of Religious Belief, Life after Death, Creation and Cosmology)
  3. Ethics (Kant’s Deontological Ethics, Aristotelian Virtue Ethics, Cognitivism and Non-Cognitivism, Religion and Morality, Medical Ethics – the beginning and end of life)
  4. Christianity and Society (The Challenge from Science, Secularisation, new movements in theology, pluralism and diversity, gender equality and discrimination)
