On a certain other Philosophy and Ethics website they have put their advice about what areas they think will come up this summer in the OCR Religious Studies exam (June 7th). However, you have to buy a copy of one of their books to find it. I don’t have the time to write a book on this, but I will have a go at telling you what I think it might be wise to revise, simply based on areas of the spec that haven’t come up for a long time. So here we go, four questions:
Critically assess Rudolf Otto’s concept of numinous experience.
‘Hume’s definition of miracles makes them impossible to believe in.’ Discuss.
‘Plato’s arguments for the soul are ineffective.’ Discuss.
Critically assess the view of scripture as revelation.
You could do a lot worse than have a go at writing an answer to these questions as part of your revision.
