    Philosophy for AS is an accessible textbook for the new 2014 AQA Advanced Subsidiary Philosophy syllabus. Structured closely around the AQA specification this textbook covers the two units, Epistemology and Philosophy of Religion, in an engaging and student-friendly way. With chapters on 'How to do philosophy', exam preparation providing students with the philosophical skills they need to succeed, and an extensive glossary to support understanding, this book is ideal for students studying philosophy.

    Each chapter includes:

    • explanation and commentary of the AQA anthology texts
    • comprehension questions to test understanding
    • discussion questions to generate evaluative argument
    • 'going further' sections for advanced study
    • cross-references to help students make connections
    • bullet-point summaries of each topic.

    The companion website hosts a wealth of further resources, including PowerPoint slides, flashcards, further reading, weblinks and handouts, all structured to accompany the textbook. It can be found at www.routledge.com/cw/alevelphilosophy.
