Friday and early next week

Friday we are going to move on to the Elements of Moral Philosophy chapter on the moral theory known as  Ethical Egoism and issues related to absolute poverty. In more recent editions this is Chapter 5: in older versions there are two chapters, one on Psychological Egoism and another on Ethical Egoism.

Please read this EMP chapter and the essay by Peter Singer called "The Singer Solution to World Poverty." This is in The Right Thing to Do and is widely reprinted online. I'll post some other materials related to that topic, including some issues related to career choice.

 A powerpoint on the topics.
