AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Proof of God’s Existence

After reading about the various proofs of the existence of God, identify which of these arguments seems to be the best, and explain why you think so. If you find none of them convincing, present your best argument against one of these proofs and why it fails to accomplish its task. Complete your response by reflecting on why philosophers have sought for thousands of years to provide such proofs, and whether it is necessary to do so.

PHI 208 Week 3 DQ 1 The Limits of Skepticism

PHI 208 Week 3 DQ 1 The Limits of Skepticism | PHI 208 | Scoop.it

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-3-dq-1-the-limits-of-skepticism/

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

The Limits of Skepticism

Can a person be skeptical about everything, or are there limits? Is it possible to doubt everything or almost everything? Does a person have an obligation to use ethical and moral reasoning when examining ones beliefs. Are there beliefs you possess that cannot be challenged or shown to be false? How might the skeptic respond to your claim that such a belief cannot be doubted? Identify one such specific belief and present your response to the skeptic. (If you don't have such a belief, explain how one could live while not accepting any claim as true.)

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Animal Rights

Do human beings have any obligations to animals in terms of their treatment? If it is wrong to treat animals cruelly, why is it not wrong to eat them? Explain if, and how, you think humans can find a balance between treating animals ethically while also raising them for food and for other reasons, such as the testing of pharmaceuticals

PHI 208 Week 2 Assignment Famine, Affluence, and Morality

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-2-assignment-famine-affluence-and-morality/

 

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Peter Singer – “Famine, Affluence, and Morality”

Please read the article “Famine, Affluence, and Morality,” by Peter Singer and complete the following tasks:

Explain Singer’s goal in this article, and then present his argument in relation to this issue. Explain three counter-arguments to Singer’s position that he addresses in his article, and then indicate Singer’s responses to those counter-arguments. Define Singer’s concept of marginal utility and identify how it relates to his argument. Compare how the ideas of duty and charity change in Singer’s proposed world? Finally, present your personal response to Singer (this should be no more than one page of the entire assignment). Provide an argument either in support of Singer’s position, against his position, or somewhere in the middle of his position. Remember that when you present your own positions you need to support those positions with as much logical reasoning and factual evidence as possible.  The paper must be at least three pages in length, formatted according to APA style, and include a title and a reference page (which does not count towards the page length). Support your point with examples from the text and at least two sources, which can be found in the Ashford Online Library. For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.

PHI 208 Week 1 DQ 1 What is Philosophy

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-1-dq-1-what-is-philosophy/

 

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

What is Philosophy

Most people have views that are strongly influenced and informed by philosophy, often without realizing it. Identify a view you have—whether on politics, religion, science, culture, or even the media and entertainment—that might be regarded as being related to philosophy. What kind of reasons do you have for holding that belief? What figure from the history of philosophy section do you think might have some views that are similar, or at least relevant, to your own? Explain why you chose that particular figure.

PHI 208 Week 3 DQ 2 Truth and the Limits of Knowledge

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-3-dq-2-truth-and-the-limits-of-knowledge/

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Truth and the Limits of Knowledge

Explain the epistemological perspective from the text (or outside sources) that most coincides with your view of truth and the way that the human mind grasps reality. Explain why you find it to be the best explanation of the way that the human mind is able to understand its world. Finally, present your views on whether humans can actually know the truth about objects or ideas in the world. If you believe they can, explain why. If you do not think they can, explain why not. Feel free to consult outside academic sources in order to explain more of the details of the theory that you describe here.

PHI 208 Week 3 Assignment Euthyphro – Plato

PHI 208 Week 3 Assignment Euthyphro – Plato | PHI 208 | Scoop.it
PHI 208 Week 3 Assignment Euthyphro – Plato

http://www.homeworkmade.com/category/phi-208-week-3-assignment-euthyphro-plato/

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Euthyphro – Plato

In the Euthyphro, Socrates and Euthyphro discuss the concept of piety/holiness. This essay will not only test your ability to recognize and engage philosophical concepts and analysis, but also brings you into the dialogue as a participant, asking you to create your own definition of holiness.

Read the Euthyphro, and write a paper in which you do the following:

Explain how the concept of holiness emerges in the dialogue and why it takes a prominent position in the conversation between Socrates and Euthyphro. Present the three definitions that Euthyphro uses in his response to Socrates, and then explain how Socrates refutes each of Euthyphro’s definitions. Formulate your own argument as to what you think Socrates’s goal is in this dialogue. How do you know that is his goal? What features of the dialogue align with your interpretation of his goal? Provide your own definition of piety/holiness and then create a Socratic response/critique of your definition. After you present your definition, take on the role of Socrates and respond to your own definition as you think he would. The paper must be at least three pages in length, formatted according to APA style, and include a title and a reference page (which does not count towards the page length). For information regarding APA samples and tutorials, visit the Ashford Writing Center, within the Learning Resources tab on the left navigation toolbar.

PHI 208 Week 2 DQ 1 Ethics and Relativism

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-2-dq-1-ethics-and-relativism/

 

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Ethics and Relativism

Our text discusses the challenge relativism presents to various ethical and religious viewpoints. Consider a specific moral question which might make it difficult to accept the relativist's response. State the moral issue involved, and provide an explanation as to why you think a relativist might have a problem giving a justified response to it. In addition, use one of the positive ethical theories from the text to interpret the issue and how one should respond to this issue.

PHI 208 Week 1 DQ 2 Justifying Beliefs

http://www.homeworkmade.com/phi-208/phi-208-week-1-dq-2-justifying-beliefs/

 

AtencioHuriturnar's insight:

Justifying Beliefs

Many philosophers insist that our most strongly held beliefs should be examined and critically evaluated. Using the required text and outside sources, explain what philosophers mean when they say that beliefs need justification? What is the importance of subjecting our beliefs to critical scrutiny? What are the advantages of believing something without examining it? What are the disadvantages? Identify a specific belief you have that you think is worth defending, and then explain your reasons for holding that belief. Be sure to include logical reasoning as well as factual evidence in all your arguments.
