AQA Philosophy A2 Level

Moral Philosophy

How do people justify their actions? How do we understand truth and the application to morality? If truth is external to the individual how do we respond to it? If truth is internal from the individual how we know what is really true? How should we apply these to moral situation?

This part of the course will look at the concept that moral concepts can be understood as being subjective. Here, in contrast to moral realism there is no moral truth external to the individual. We need to take account of how the individual is to then respond to these moral truths. MORALITY IS CREATED BY THE INDIVIDUAL AND SOCIETY
