Each question must be answered with 250 words or more. I attached the assignment prework, it's just a document to help with the assignment.


Question #1

Singer argues that there is no moral justification for denying moral consideration to animals. Can you think of a reason why our moral consideration should include all humans regardless of their level of cognitive ability, yet denied to non-human animals simply because they have lower levels of cognitive abilities (though still higher in some cases than those of human infants and some mentally disabled humans)? What response might he have to your way of drawing the line between the types of beings that should get moral consideration and those that should not?
Question #2
 If the primary goal of utilitarianism is to generate the greatest good for the greatest number, a secondary goal is to minimize suffering.   Using at least one quote from one of the required readings, discuss the ways in which these two principles are consistent or inconsistent with each other.   If you think they are consistent, provide a real or imagined example that illustrates this consistency.  If you think they are inconsistent, provide a real or imagined example that illustrates this inconsistency.  Complete your post by discussing whether minimizing suffering is equal to, lesser than, or more important that generating the greatest good for the greatest number.
