Philosophy for AS and A2 is the definitive textbook for students of Advanced Subsidiary or Advanced Level philosophy courses, structured directly around the specification of the AQA. Following a lively foreword by Nigel Warburton, author of Philosophy: The Basics, a team of experienced teachers devote a chapter each to the six themes covered by the syllabus:

Each of the chapters include helpful student-friendly features.

  • a list of key concepts, to introduce students to the topic
  • bite-size sections corresponding to the syllabus topics
  • actual exam questions from previous years
  • suggested discussion questions to promote debate
  • text-boxes with helpful summaries, case-studies and examples
  • an annotated further-reading list directing students towards the best articles, books and websites
  • a comprehensive glossary, providing a handy reference point

There is a final chapter on essay writing and exam preparation, designed to help students get to grips with the examination board requirements.

Philosophy for AS and A2 is written by a team of expert teachers based at Heythrop College - part of the University of London - which specializes in teaching philosophy and theology.
