philosophy discussion 20

For this discussion board, think of a moral argument that you or someone else you heard use in the past week. Break the argument down into its premise(s) and its singular conclusion. Explain why it is a moral argument, i.e. be sure to include and label both a descriptive and a prescriptive premise (see page 291 in our text).

Example Argument:

P1 (Prescriptive premise): People who aren’t in poverty ought to help those in need.

P2 (Descriptive premise): There are many people who live in poverty in Uganda.

Conclusion: Therefore, people who aren’t in poverty ought to help people in need in Uganda.

  4. Evaluate the argument (pages 292-293).

Peer Response!

In 1-2 paragraphs:

Critique a classmate’s example. Was the example given an accurate representation of a moral argument? Do you think they were thorough in their evaluation? In what ways? Are there areas of their evaluation that can use improvement?
