AS/A2 Compatibilism (Soft Determinism)

AS/A2 Compatibilism (Soft Determinism)

An introduction to compatibilism with a focus on the specific understanding put forward by Locke. The powerpoint offers key information for students' own note taking and I have included some guidance in the presenter notes for yourself. The resource includes a differentiated group interpretation sheet where students are tasked with examining quotes from about and from famous compatibilists including Locke, Hume and Hobbes in order to identify key features of compatibilist thought. Included is a 50 word grid for use with the plenary. I hope you find it helpful since it has taken me a long while to feel very comfortable teaching this area of the course! I have provided for free the follow-up reading on David Hume (which can be given as an independent reading task or done in lesson). It can be found by searching 'A2 Compatibilism' on the TES resources or by copying this URL into your address bar: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/a2-compatibilism-david-hume-reading-with-questions-11127076
