  • What do people spend money on that they either don’t need or rarely use other than those things mentioned by Singer? What things might people be most easily convinced to do without, and why?
  • Consider and discuss whether the Kantian argument for helping the vulnerable is more or less convincing than the traditional utilitarian arguments. What kinds of arguments would be the most likely to persuade people to help those in need?
  • Does Peter Singer’s greatest moral evil rule require that persons act in heroic ways or go above and beyond the call of duty as Arthur suggests? Explain your answer.

 

In a paragraph (150 words minimum), please respond to ONE of the following questions:
