About me

Hi, I'm Michelle, and I'm a second year Philosophy and Economics undergraduate at LSE. I studied A level R.S, Economics and Maths so I'm familiar with these subject contents, and am also keen to also give advice about exam technique. 

 

I have a younger sibling so I know how rewarding it is to tutor someone and help them understand something they're having trouble with. I was also nervous about my grades during my time at school, so I'm looking to pass the helpful knowledge I've gained from my experience to those facing those challenges now.

 

To maximise the help I can give in the session, it would be great if you could tell me what you're having trouble with so I can go through it beforehand to make sure I am fully prepared and can help you as much as I can.

Tutoring style involves and engages the student. Classes packed with knowledge and advice on the subject. Preparation of classes, forwarding web links and notes is so helpful.

Questions Michelle has answered

The Problem of Evil: What is the inconsistent trial?

The problem of evil is often given in the form of an inconsistent triad. For example, J. L. Mackie gave the following three propositions:

  1. God is omnipotent
  2. God is omnibenevolent
  3. Evil exists

Mackie argued that these propositions were inconsistent, and thus, that at least one of these propositions must be false. Either:

  • God is omnipotent and omnibenevolent, and evil does not exist.
  • God is omnipotent, but not omnibenevolent; thus, evil exists by God's will.
  • God is omnibenevolent, but not omnipotent; thus, evil exists, but it is not within God's power to stop it (at least not instantaneously).

What is an inferior good?

The income elasticity of demand measures the relationship between a change in quantity demanded and a change in income. The formula is:

(Percentage change in quantity demanded of good x) divided by (the percentage change in real consumers' income)

Inferior goods have a negative income elasticity of demand. This means that demand falls as income rises. An example is frozen vegetables - as we become richer and earn more income, we consume less of this as we can afford to eat nicer foods.

What is Occam's razor?

Occam's razor (or Ockham's razor) is a principle from philosophy. Suppose there exist two explanations for an occurrence. In this case the simpler one is usually better. Another way of saying it is that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is.
