Philosophy- Ethical Reasoning
Read Chapters 2, 10, 22, and 23 in Exploring Ethics (“Morality and Moral Philosophy”, by William Frankena; “The Nature of Moral Disagreement”, by Charles L. Stevenson; “Famine, Affluence and Morality” by Peter Singer; and “A Reply to Singer”, by Travis Timmerman; pages, 2-5, 71-77, 151-165 in Cahn, fifth edition) .
Then write a one page summary of Singer’s article, highlighting his argument (if you can formalize it, great, if not, don’t worry), his main points in support of his premises, the objections he considers, and how he responds to those. Then explain, and comment briefly, on Timmerman’s response (another full paragraph).
