Philosophy for A2: Unit 3 is the definitive textbook for students of the current AQA Advanced Level syllabus. Structured very closely around the AQA specifications for Unit 3: Key Themes in Philosophy, it introduces the student to each of the core themes:

  • philosophy of mind
  • political philosophy
  • epistemology and metaphysics
  • moral philosophy
  • philosophy of religion.

All chapters are helpfully subdivided into short digestible passages, and include:

  • quiz questions to test core knowledge
  • discussion questions to deepen understanding 
  • 'going further' sections for advanced study 
  • text boxes highlighting key definitions and arguments 
  • cross-references to help students make connections 
  • lively illustrations, diagrams and a glossary.

In addition, a chapter on exam preparation contains a wealth of helpful hints and tips on revision and exam techniques.

Written by an experienced philosopher and A Level consultant, Philosophy for A2: Unit 3 is an essential companion for all students of A2 Level philosophy.
