Lesson 9 natural law – ao2 evaluation

  1. 1. Natural Law – AO2 Evaluation By the end of this lesson you will have: • Prepared revision tools for the strengths and weaknesses of natural law • Considered your responses to the other questions • Made improvements on your homework essay
  2. 2. Essay improvements • • • • • • Must be long – detailed. Must have at least 6 paragraphs. Must have some sort of introduction. Say where natural law originated, say 2 main scholars associated with it, say it’s an absolutist theory, say it is grounded in human nature. Focuses on reason. The difference between deontological and ‘telos’ DO NOT WRITE THAT ARISTOTLE WAS A RELATIVIST. Aquinas was a deontologist – but he believed that humans had a ‘telos’. So our ACTIONS must be deontological, and if we ALWAYS follow these actions no matter what the consequences, we will reach our ‘telos’ Name books – Aristotle wrote Nicomachaen Ethics, Aquinas wrote Summa Theologica ‘Link’ part of the paragraph should show you are answering the question – and make the essay flow. Use words such as ‘Therefore’... Use the words in the question in order to do this. DO NOT just give the first sentence of your next paragraph. Always follow the P.E.E.L structure. When ‘explaining’ use the sentence starter ‘this is because’....’the reason for this is’...’this means that’...’in this sense’
  3. 3. Strengths and Weaknesses • What do you think the strengths of natural law are? • And the weaknesses? • Using the booklet to help you, transfer the strengths and weaknesses in different coloured pens to the picture of Thomas Aquinas
  4. 4. AO2 Questions • There are 5 questions which can be asked for AO2 on Natural Law • Read through the 5 pages and highlight your favourite 3 arguments for and against for each page • Now see if you can spot any overlapping scholars. Could you use the same quote for two of the same arguments?
  5. 5. P.E.S.E.L • Complete your P.E.S.E.L paragraph sheets • Chose a question of your choice
