Starting Out as a Philosopher (and A-levels)
14th May 2007
Many people (in the UK) find their first taste of studying philosophy to be the AS /A2 Religious Studies courses – most notably the Philosophy & Ethics A Level options….
I thought it would be an interesting post for this site to ask the readers of the blog (many of our students did these qualifications) to tell us about their experiences – and others, how did you encounter philosophy? To summarise – we would love to hear:
- Tips / Advice for AS/A2 Philosophy & Ethics students
- Anecdotes about your studies at A-Level (16-18yrs old – for readers abroad!)
- How did (for all blog readers) you first encounter philosophy as a subject – and what did you make of it?
- And a question for students: Why are you studying philosophy? How did it happen?
