Philosophy 1A


Professor Andreas Teuber

Saving the World's Children
from Dying of Starvation


Drawing on the reading and your own considered opinion and good judgment, answer the question(s) on the following pages.

In defending your position, offer what you believe are the most principled arguments you can make. Think of arguments against your position, of arguments that might be made against it, and respond to them.

In thinking of objections to your argument, think of the best possible objections that someone on the other side might be able to come up with, i.e., give yourself a hard time. If you can respond to the other side at its strongest rather than at its weakest point that can only help to strengthen your own position and make it that much more persuasive.

Papers should be between five to six (5-6)
pages in length or longer, if you prefer.

Papers should also be double-spaced.

Please number pages.

We would like to have two copies,
marked COPY ONE and COPY TWO.

Papers should be stapled, not held together by
Paper CLIP, Elmer's GLUE, Dentyne GUM,
SPIT, James BOND or Origami FOLD.

Please note: all final papers must be submitted online.

To submit online, please go to the . . .


Once you arrive at the Main Page, you will notice that there are 25 TOPIC OUTLINES.

Scroll down to the 25th Topic or Module as some prefer to call it and click on

"FINAL PAPER DUE by 12 (NOON) on DEC., 14, 2010"

This will jump you to a page where you can UPLOAD a file from your desktop wherever in the world you happen to be, so long as you are "connected."

You may upload a Word Document or a PDF file, whichever you prefer.

Your paper will not be viewable by anyone in the class other than the teaching staff. This method for paper submission not only saves paper but provides everyone in the class with an easy way to submit their final paper.

Please also note, LATTE will not accept uploads of any documents after NOON on Tuesday, the 14th.

You do, however, have the opportunity to submit one file at a time. So if, for any reason, you have submitted your paper and want to make changes before Noon on Tuesday, you will need (first) to delete the file which the software, you'll see, allows you to do. After you have deleted your original submission, you can then upload a new version from your desktop and you can do this as many times as you wish before the final deadline.

Again: all final papers are due no later
than NOON on Tuesday, December, the 14th, 2010.
