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 his argument in
relation to this issue. Explain three counter-arguments to Singer’s
position that he addresses in his article, and then indicate Singer’s
responses to those counter-arguments. Define Singer’s concept of
marginal utility and identify how it relates to his argument. Compare
how the ideas of duty and charity change in Singer’s proposed world?
Finally, present your personal response to Singer (this should be no
more than one page of the entire assignment). Provide an argument
either in support of Singer’s position, against his position, or somewhere
in the middle of 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

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