Yaunek Murray Panther ID: 2718046 PHI 2600 Ethics Paper 3: Hardin vs. Singer After reading the provided articles discussing global justice and world poverty, I took special interest in Garrett Hardin’s piece about “lifeboat ethics.” Although Peter Singer made an exceptional argument regarding global famine and affluence, I hold the stance that certain aspects of his theory put unrealistic expectations on individuals in an intricate and complicated global society. However, in spite of my pre-conceived notions, I will view and discuss both articles using a utilitarian scope. In Singer’s article he presents an intuitively appealing theory. He forms his theory around the simple and virtually unarguable notion: Suffering and death from lack of food, shelter, and medical care are bad. Anyone who values human life would have to agree with this statement. His next premise is that if possible one should, by any means, help to prevent such circumstances, if not sacrificing anything of greater or equal moral importance.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
