    Revise Philosophy for AS Level is the definitive revision guide for students of the Advanced Subsidiary level syllabus. Following the AQA syllabus, it helps students revise using past exam questions, examiner's reports, and tips on revision for the examination. Also included are a helpful glossary and annotated further reading. It covers all three units of the AS Level syllabus:

    • Unit 1: Theory of Knowledge
    • Unit 2: Moral Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion
    • Unit 3: Texts.

    The four set texts are discussed: Plato's The Republic, Descartes' Meditations, Marx and Engels’ The German Ideology and Sartre’s Existentialism and Humanism.

    Essential reading for all students of AS Level Philosophy, it is an ideal companion to the textbook Philosophy for AS and A2, also published by Routledge.
