Week 6 Packback Assignment Instructions
This week we are studying Singer’s arguments for solving extreme world poverty, and have also been introduced to the idea of “effective altruism.”
There are many, many causes of suffering in the world, which we could all be more altruistic and/or Utilitarian about.
What cause(s) are you most passionate about?
Choose one (or two, if you wish) causes you are most passionate about/interested in. Then, do some research on the problem/cause, as well as possible solutions for it.
Your initial “question” post should be something like: “What is the best/most effective way to solve the problem of X?
Succinctly and clearly explain the problem/cause itself, as well as the possible solutions you have discovered.
Then, specifically, answer these questions:
1) What seem to be some of the most effective ways to solve those problems?
2) Would Utilitarianism support these solutions? Why or why not?
3) In what ways would you be willing to commit yourself to a more Utilitarian way of life, to try and provide solutions to your chosen cause/problembcis? How and Why?
