Well there are some new topics: Heidegger, Rorty, Popper, Postmodernists, Ethics etc.

They haven't given a single recommended book for Islamic Philosophy. They were in a haste of course. So follow the same books as I have mentioned in the head post. Ignore the Logic part. Which has become dated now. Use Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy for topics you won't find in my recommended books.

Time for preparation is halved and so are the total marks.

The syllabus is an improvement. Popper and postmodernism are new trends in philosophy and Ethics which was ignored earlier is taken which would be a good learning experience for its students.

It won't get you 90s but will surely give you 70s with good preparation, which is a decent score.

I did not read Durant's books so I'm not in a position to comment on them. For what I followed, please read the head post.

Buddha Sir I need guidance from you. I am taking philosophy as my optional for CE-2016. You have recommended following books for it.

Western Philosophy:

Popkin’s Philosophy Made Simple

Islamic Philosophy by M. Saeed Sheikh

Islamic Philosophy- Subcontinent (Shah wali Ullah, Sir Syed, Iqbal)
MM Sharif’s book chapters

So please guide me that these books still covers the entire syllabus or there is a need to read more books.

Logical portion has been eliminated by FPSC so there is no need to read Patric Hurley's and Copi's introduction to logic books. Am I right?

Everyone is saying that the logical portion of philosophy has been eliminated and that was the scoring portion now philosophy will not remain a scoring subject. What do you say about it? Should I go for it?

I think instead of choosing a new subject for which obviously there is no guiding material I should choose a subject which has some guiding material like philosophy.
What do you say?
