Key Thinker Quizzes

Obviously, the 16 Key Thinkers aren’t the only thing that you should be working on during your study of Politics and Society, but they’re a really good place to start to make sure that you are getting your head around some of the more complex issues. Remember, almost all the essays that you might be asked to write in the Leaving Cert exam will ask you to back up your opinions with reference to at least TWO Key Thinkers! I’ve added quizzes on a few other topics at the bottom of the page also!

I don’t have the full list done yet (6 left to go!), but I’m adding them as I go, so check back later if the thinker you’re working on hasn’t appeared yet!
