About me

I'm studying Philosophy at the University of Bristol. This is a subject that inspires conversation and so I love to chat through ideas and am passionate about exploring different viewpoints. It's an exciting and challenging subject that has made me open minded and keen to encourage others. 

I've had experience of teaching while I was volunteering abroad for a few months, and I really enjoyed meeting new people and helping them to develop their interests. The key to learning is enjoyment so I really focus on finding the 'fun' in every subject. 

In the sessions you'll take the lead so that I can focus on what you want to learn. We'll use different methods that you feel comfortable with until you're confident that you know what you need to know. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Questions Abbie has answered

How can theists reply to the problem of evil and suffering?

There are a number of theodicies used to defend the existence of God against the problem of evil and suffering. One such argument is called the free will defence and is advocated by Alvin Plantinga. He argues that the existence of evil is justified in order to allow us free will: a world with free agents is more valuable than a world where God prevents us from acting in morally bad ways. So the existence of evil and suffering is our responsibility and this preserves the nature of God. However it could be argued that we could preserve free will to an extent while having less evil in the world. For example, we could have the freedom to choose but not the freedom to act, or we could be necessarily good beings. But the theist could repond that this is not genuine freedom and argue that real freedom requires the ability to act.
