Ashford 3: – Week 2 – Assignment


Peter Singer – “Famine, Affluence, and Morality”

Please read the article “Famine, Affluence, and Morality,” by Peter Singer and complete the following tasks: Explain Singer’s goal in this article, and then present      Singer’s argument that supports his position.  Explain three counter-arguments to Singer’s position      that he addresses in the article, and then summarize Singer’s responses to      those counter-arguments.  Define Singer’s concept of marginal utility, and explain how this concept relates to his argument.       Compare how the ideas of duty and charity      are different in Singer’s      proposed world as opposed to how they are currently used in our society.  Finally, present your personal response to Singer (this      should be no more than one page of the entire assignment). Develop an      argument either in support of Singer’s position, against his position, or      somewhere in the middle in relation to his position. Remember that when      you present your own positions you need to support those positions with as      much logical reasoning and factual evidence as possible.  

The paper must be at least three pages in length, formatted according to APA style, and include a title and a reference page (which does not count towards the page length). Support your point with examples from the text and at least two sources, which can be found in the Ashford Online Library. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
