Moral philosophy, also sometimes referred to as ethical philosophy, is a part of the axiology branch of philosophy. In simple terms, it is concerned with what is right and wrong, and examines both the nature of morality and how it can be applied to our lives. If you've been struggling with this material, consider working with a private moral philosophy tutor. Varsity Tutors can put you in touch with a tutor who can help you deepen your understanding of this fascinating field of philosophy.
Because moral philosophy tutoring sessions can be tailored to fit the material the student wants to focus on, every session is different. Generally speaking, though, there are subtopics likely to be covered when learning about moral philosophy:
- Early Greek philosophers such as Aristotle and Socrates
- Normative ethics
- Applied ethics
- The theories and works of Kant, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, and other philosophers
- State or Mohist consequentialism
Because moral philosophy can be applied to fields such as business, law, and politics, it can be a very complex subject. It's common for students to become confused when delving into it. Working with a moral philosophy tutor can be a wonderful way to get a handle on difficult theories. Having access to a mentor who can, for example, explain Kant's theory of ethics in plain terms can make all the difference in the world. Tutors are able teach material slowly and focus on problematic areas. Some students find that moral philosophy tutoring sessions are simply less stressful than a class setting, and the calm environment helps them to better absorb the material. Other students find that being able to work at their own pace and ask questions when needed is enough to get them through any rough patches.
