Post prelims Philosophy preparation for Mains focussed 30 days plan
Okk, but if say I have to write the legacy of Descartes or Locke, both had a lot of inconsistencies so besides the fact that they both were initiators of their schools of thought, what else can be written for their significance.
Same qtn about Leibnitz (as he too stifled freedom so Spinoza stands more consistent) and berkeley
@IASVk Legacy in general implies the wealth (economical, spiritual, infrastructural, etc,.) one leaves behind after one leaves one's mortal body. For philosophy, it specifically implies the thought spectrum in terms of epistemological and ontological one has left and others from the fraternity either following it directly or are vested in performing researches, etc, indirectly. For example, The legacy of Patanjali is Yogasutra and that of Plato would be Platonic School of Philosophy. I hope it clears some bits of your ambiguity. : )
@theuniversalwords668 yes thanks, this was helpful
Is anyone writin Philosophy TLP archive
Or any other initiative ?
I am looking for peer review grup for philo
Does anybody have any idea of VVRIAS Philosophy?
How are their module courses [I am struggling in W Philosophy], test series and also Ambuja sir as a teacher?
No first hand experience but have been recommended to me by two seniors @Interloperr
@IASVk Thnx Bhai...What's ur strategy for philosophy?
How much you are targeting?
Nothing much bro, first timer hu
Had asked for strategy here on forum, not much help though
Just watching Mitra videos now , and qtns topic by topic
@IASVk Don't worry...u will figure out.
I am also not having much experience.
However, I talked to some teachers & seniors reg prep strategy. They all agree on - a] Making own concise notes after understanding the topic, b] Complement your notes with PYP [framing part]; c] Read one ref book to make your prep organic.
I too watched Mitra sir videos but I was not able to link topics [no story like flow] which I think can be corrected by reading ref book.
Hope it Helps.
@Interloperr okkay ,
Sure , idk if I have enuf time to read books
But I will try
Kindly do suggest the chapters that u really feel like recommending , that will enhance answer writing in that topics answers
@IASVk As far as I know, attempting Vedanta will fetch u more marks than Carvaka in Indian Philo.
In W Philo, every subsequent philosopher builds its philosophy upon the previous philosopher. So, that linkage is important.
Similarly, one can fetch more marks in contemporary philosophies cos of late, examiner not coming across quality answers in this topic, hence there is more scope of fetching marks.
However, I may be wrong.
Anyone located in Patel Nagar, expecting to write Mains. Want to dedicatedly discuss PYQs questions structures. pm me. Preferably someone who has written Mains.
