Philosophy of Religion OCR Study Guide H573/1

The OCR Philosophy of Religion Study Guide is designed to help GCE A level students ask the right questions by unpacking key issues and linkages according to structures of thought, and by doing the exercises, to build essay-writing skills step by step.

The major influences of Plato & Aristotle, whose ideas overshadow the entire specification, and arguments for God’s existence, religious language, experience and twentieth century influences are all brought together to provide a unified approach. The specification is interpreted with great clarity in order to go deeper where necessary, to give the best chance of an A grade. Much more than a textbook, this guide is an exploration of critical issues surrounding Philosophy of Religion and its influence on ta metaphysical worldview which still resonates today.

Detailed evaluation helps build the critical sense and the book comes with its own website of additional material, peped.org.

An essential book for those who wish to be liberated to think philosophically, with rigour and flexibility.
