This wikisite is intended primarily to help Sixth Formers and undergraduates, and others who are interested, get to grips with some of the more challenging texts used in Sixth Form Philosophy syllabi.

There are also plenty of links to extension reading and other resources to hopefully help develop your wider interest in Philosophy.
I have selected some interesting (and searchable) web articles on Philosophy here.
And there is a more thought-through reading list for those thinking of applying for undergraduate Philosophy here.
Alternatively, if Theology is more your thing, then go here for a reading list and here for some web articles.
You can find out more about me here.

The summaries, commentaries and notes I have uploaded below can be edited and added to by anyone - all users of this website can make changes. Do edit a page or add links or videos or other media if you have ideas to contribute. My hope is that the "wisdom of crowds" will help to make this a really interesting and useful resource for assisting with the study of these texts and topics. Do use the discussion boards (links at the top of each page) to discuss particular topics, and get in touch if you have any suggestions!
