Nursing homework help

Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is demonstrate your comprehension of an important
piece of original philosophy and its theoretical foundations.
Skills: This assignment will help you practice the following skills:
• Reading comprehension.
• Presenting a philosophical idea in writing.
• Identifying the parts of an argument.
• Synthesizing a topic with theory.
Knowledge: This assignment will help you become familiar with the following content.
• Utilitarian ethical theory.
• The ethics of one of the most cited ethicists alive, Peter Singer.
In this paper you will be summarizing and explaining Peter Singer’s argument that we should donate
all the money we would normally spend on luxuries to charities that provide life-saving aid for children
in need.
For your paper:
1. First, begin by stating what Singer ultimately concludes is morally impermissible and what is
morally obligatory.
2. Next, describe the trolley problem that Singer invokes in his argument, and explain why it is
central to Singer’s argument. Why think that the trolley problem is an accurate metaphor for
the choices we actually make all the time? Describe a realistic trolley problem – one without
Bugattis, X-Boxes, or toddlers on railroads – that instead uses only possibilities from the
everyday happenings of American life.
3. Explain what Peter Singer means when he calls himself a utilitarian in your own words.
Identify what plausible assumption Singer makes about the value of a luxury purchase for
yourself relative to food and medicine for a child in need and explain how this assumption is
fundamental to his argument.
4. Then, describe two objections to his argument that Singer discusses in his essay, and explain
what his response is to each.
5. Although he himself does not explicitly identify what would be supererogatory on his view,
identify the kind of act that you think Singer would most likely say is supererogatory and
explain why you think this is. (“Supererogatory” is defined in the Blackboard vocabulary
6. Explain whether or not you accept Singer’s conclusion. If so, what changes in your beliefs
and/or actions do you need to make, if any? If you reject his conclusion you must also reject at
least one of his premises. Which premise(s) do you reject and why? (Be sure your reader
knows that you are presenting your own original thoughts in this section. It’s okay to use
personal pronouns.)
Your paper should be in double-spaced 12-point font, Times New Roman, Vani, or Calibri. Give it an
appropriate title and bold or underline the title. Make sure your name and date is on it, and also put the
time your class meets (this will really help me stay organized) but don’t put the name of the professor.
