Study Guide

I will have a complete study guide for the last test sometime soon, but you know that it'll cover everything we've done since the last test.

  • utilitarianism readings and notes,
  • euthanasia readings and notes,
  • a bit of Kant's ethics (from a handout, below; might want to re-read A Short Introduction to Moral Philosophy from RTD),
  • Singer on racism, sexism, "intelligence"-ism and speciesism,
  • Kant on animals,
  • Machan on animals,
  • Simmons on animals,
  • "mad-libs" handout on 50+ objections to Simmons & Singer,
  • we'll likely read MLK's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" on the last day
There will be a final paper on Singer/Simmons and animals, due at time of the final. I'll give you the assignment soon.
