outstanding survey class, recommend it for any and all

This course is important on many levels, and take the lessons seriously as your way of life could develop in new and more enriching ways if you fully engage. The final essay can be complex depending on which question you choose, so try your best to answer as carefully as you can.

a unique chance to challenge your world-view by exposing yourself to the logical and down-to-earth approach to ethics that Peter Singer stands for. it's not about saving the world, it's about saving your soul, in the sense that knowing about the degree of inequality makes you guilty if you do nothing - check out the pond analogy to get started...

What a wonderful course. It gives each of us a way to help in the best possible manner. One would think that only serious philanthropists can help when in fact every single person can.
