Descartes and Scepticism

Descartes and Scepticism

This consists of a PowerPoint that I wrote for key stage 4 or 5 on Descartes' sceptical arguments but also an essay plan I wrote for year 13 Philosophy students on the success of scepticism generally. It includes references to the arguments from illusion, dreaming and deception as well as a brief outline of Putnam's Brain-in-a-vat theory.

Ancient Greek Influences on Philosophy of Religion

Ancient Greek Influences on Philosophy of Religion

Overview, self and teacher assessment, self-reflection document. I designed it to help me to keep a tight reign on the programme of study (I have a tendency to spend too long on this topic!) and to encourage my students to take more of an active role in their progress and learning. I'm hoping it will also help to encourage an open learning environment by encouraging the sharing of misconceptions etc.

Some Utilitarianism resources

An evaluation sheet (old spec AQA) and a great Mill slide show that some of my year 10 Ethics students just showed to their class a few weeks ago (quite funny, I think).
