About me

About me: Hi my name is Edward and I am a third year Philosophy student at Cambridge University. Philosophy has become a serious passion of mine, and I hope that a few tutorials with me will make you love it just as much. In addition to Philosophy, however, I also offer a range of other subjects that I have fallen in love with along my educational career. I am patient, relaxed, and friendly, and you will find my tutorials to be always interesting and stress-free. I believe that any student can master a subject if they are truly passionate about it. My approach, therefore, is to try to generate a genuine passion for the subject, which will lead, in the end, to excellent results. Other Subjects: In addition to Philosophy, my track record at school has prepared me to offer the following tutoring services: Spanish (Any level up to A-level/IB) Personal Statements Oxbridge Interview/Preparation Practice University Applications and Interview Practice: I offer support and assistance for all parts of the university application process (personal statements, course choices, essay submission, entrance tests etc.) Additionally, having gone through the strenuous Oxbridge application process myself, I would also be happy to offer help with university applications and interviews for aspiring Oxbridge candidates. Examples of Philosophy: Below is an example of some of my work in Philosophy (a paper on a philosophical theory of promising): https://www.academia.edu/29110464/Rawlsian_Promises_A_Defence_of_Instrumentalism_about_Promissory_Obligation

Productive session, he is helping get very high marks again :)

Bilal (Student) August 14 2016

It's been a while since I have had a session with this amazing tutor. Since then I have finished my exams and I have scored top marks, one of the highest in the year. This was due to Edward's tutoring. We had to rush and revise topics fast with only A WEEK or two to go and I managed to learn and revisit a lot of the topics for the two exams. He taught me well and I am satisfied with the top marks I have received with his help.

What is the problem of moral truths? (AQA A Level Philosophy)

When talking about morality, it is natural to think that there exist certain moral truths. That is, when it comes to morality, some things are true, and some things ae false, and that's all there is to it.  Surely, we think, it's true that murder is wrong. We think, more specifically, that it...

When talking about morality, it is natural to think that there exist certain moral truths. That is, when it comes to morality, some things are true, and some things ae false, and that's all there is to it. 

Surely, we think, it's true that murder is wrong. We think, more specifically, that it is a fact  that murder is wrong. We think that these kind of truths are amongst the most undeniable and secure truths that we have. 

There are, however, a number of problems when it comes to moral truths:

First, there is the metaphysical problem - what could a moral truth even be? What would a moral fact look like? What sort of entity is a moral truth? 

There are even more troubling metaphysical questions, such as - why are moral truths intrinsically motivating or normative? Just by knowing them, we seem to be motivated to act in a certain way. There don't seem to be many other types of truths, or facts that work in this way. 

Then, we have the epistemological problem; how on earth can we know what these moral truths are? What faculty do we use to know them?

These problems shed serious doubt on our initial assumption that moral truths exist. Moral truths are both metaphysically and epistemologically highly problematic.
