Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project examines Peter Singers argument, that you should help those who are less fortu-nate than yourself. This project will examine four different arguments that challenge the views of Singer. We will be analyzing all of the arguments, including the one from Singer, deconstruct them, and af-terwards, judge them in terms of their plausibility. We will also examine how psychological barriers can inflect the choice whether or not to do-nate, as well as evaluate which argument stands out as the most credible, when we adopt a utilitarian view. As a result of our analysis and discussion, our conclusions supports Singers argument. Despite the arguments against the view, that making donations for people that are poor is the most moral thing to do, this does not provide us with the definitive answer as to why we should not choose to donate at all, from a utilitarian perspective. Our conclusion is that we should indeed donate to those that are less fortunate than ourselves, because it is either morally the best thing that we can do, or perhaps because it aligns itself with ideal that the optimum outcome of making donations, helps to provide the greatest good for the greatest number.
