Philosophy for A2: Unit 4 is the definitive textbook for students of the current AQA Advanced Level syllabus for philosophy. Structured very closely around the AQA specifications for Unit 4: Philosophical Problems, Michael Lacewing helps students to engage with and understand the arguments of the five key texts:

  • Hume's An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding
  • Plato's The Republic
  • Mill's On Liberty
  • Descartes' Meditations
  • Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil.

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.

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 4 is an essential companion for all students of A2 Level philosophy.
