Tma 3

Visible to anyone in the world

Tma 3 asks us to consider the ends justify the means in relation to consequentialism..

I am tempted to use the trolley thought experiment to answer the tma question.

Or would that be to simplistic?

Block 3 and the christmas break

Visible to anyone in the world

Having had a look at the block 3 tma question, i am going to have to work through the christmas break.

The tma question is very long. More like a four part question.

That is a big question to answer so it will require alot of work...hence no christmas break for me.

I got 68 for my first tms, i am waiting for the mark for tma2.

I think it will not be as good as 68.

So i need to put the work into tma3 to try and keep my ocas in the 2.2 range for this module.

A222 has 6 tma's and no substitutions, so a good ocas will be hard to achieve.

Lets hope that it does not go from 68 and then downwards.

Double down.

Visible to anyone in the world

Having just worked my way through 75% of chapter 1, block 3, it is abit disheartning to find out the reading volume will double in this block..

Come on a222, ours is a difficult relationship already, without you gaslighting about the reading.

Ideology of Liberalism

Visible to anyone in the world

Ideology of Liberalism. it has a spelling mistake, Liberals usE not liberals us the above. also i am stopping here with ideology, i would only ever carry it forward to the exam as a short answer. i don't have time to do each ideology in relation to welfare, nor make a infographic for feminism or environmentalism. I am moving onto Lipjhart and his modules of Liberal democracies next. so sorry Simon Banks van Zyl but it's 4 flash cards only for ideology.
