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.

Each chapter includes:

  • explanation and commentary of the AQA anthology texts
  • comprehension questions to test understanding
