actual exam questions from previous years
suggested discussion questions to promote debate
text-boxes with helpful summaries, case-studies and examples
an annotated further-reading list directing students towards the best articles, books and websites
a comprehensive glossary, providing a handy reference point

Philosophy for AS and A2 is written by a team of expert teachers based at Heythrop College - part of the University of London - which specializes in teaching philosophy and theology.
