philosophy for mains 2018 watsapp group for serious students only

hi everyone,
Many of us having philo as optional, even after taking expensive coaching from patanjali,mitra,etc & giving ample attention to philosophy optional paper are still are not able to get genuine marks so as to get a desired rank in final list. There must be a problem with our approach. I just wanna start a serious small ACTIVE group so that we can share our experiences and our resources so that we all can strive for atleast 280 in next mains.
interested students plz inbox me ur watsapp no. The group will be active and to the point.

    Thanks for suggestions bhai. Yeah lot of afvah + blind-followers here too in UPSC preparation. I strongly believe that when genuine and original answers comes from someone who has studied the subject from academic books like Y.Masih for western or Palmer etc, good marks will be awarded for sure. Sirf coaching wale fatte marne se number nahi aane wale, 500 bache around hote hai english medium se and around 500 from Hindi medium writing philosophy mains (as per the last annual report of UPSC) Likhte sab coaching wala maal hai, sala check karne wale bhi ro deta hoga. Kahan se number aayenge !!

    incomplete symbol hai ye bro of RUSSELL. I met a x, x is a man....karke eliminate karna tha. I read it wrongly and instead wrote bakwas about moore's defence of common sense :neutral:

    exactly yaar, I had paucity of time since I attempted 20 and 15 markers first. Moreover, after attempting the question on synthetic and analytic difference I got confused as well as nervous and hence when I saw this question, I thought it is related to some commonsense statement :smile: , which the examiner will definitely find lacking in me :smiley:

    thanks a lot bhai , isko kaha se detail me padhaa jaa sakta hai ?
  • @analyzer56 bro that question (2.a) is arguably the best question they asked this time, mind sharing what you wrote?

    Intro: illustrated how it could be called analytic/synthetic whatever the question was asking (could not remember the question exactly now). Then, i wrote it from different philosophers point of view regarding synthetic and analytic statements (LP, kant, etc). In the conclusion I also mentioned about QUINE's view of merging of differences between the two.

    yaar this is nowhere mentioned, u had to connect it what u had studied. Unfortunately, even after studying it well, brain fade happened and I messed it up. Now, I don't know how will I perform :neutral:

    You will perform much better than a tired Dulha performs on his first night. Don't worry.

    Baaki this question was application based.

    A 10 marker won't matter really.Take my word.
