read a book and write a critical and argumentative paper.

The assignment is to read A Decent Life by Todd May and write a critical and argumentative paper concerning his account of what is required to live a decent life.

The paper should be 5 to 6 pages double-spaced in Times New Roman (orequivalent) 12-point font. Longer is fine, but shorter is not. Do not mess around with margins. Spelling,punctuation, clarity, and style all count. Label each section of the paper with a heading.

This is not a research paper. You do not necessarily need to do any outside reading or cite any outside sources, though if you do draw on outside sources be sure to cite them correctly. You should, however, quote from A Decent Life to support your exposition and criticism, citing it correctly.

**An outline (one or two sentences for each of the parts of the paper) is due in 20 hours.(4/6/2020)

Format

Introduction: Introduce your topic and give a roadmap for the paper. Indicate briefly the philosophical issue you will be discussing, the position May takes, and the position you will defend. the paper should not read like a mystery novel; I should have a clear idea of what you are doing from the beginning.

May’s View: Clearly explain May’s account of a decent life. What does May say about acknowledgment? What 3 reasons does may give, against Singer, for not living a life of strict morality (inother words a life of moral sainthood or altruism)? Write as if your audience were not the instructor but someone who was unfamiliar with philosophy. Be clear and precise. Keep this separate from your ownposition on the issue, at least for the moment.Apt quotations from the book to support your arguments arenecessary. Cite parenthetically “.. lies” (53).

Criticism of May’sView: Having stated his view, what criticisms can you offer? Has May given sufficient reasons to support his conclusion()? Has he met the burden of proof? Give examples to illustrate your criticisms.IV. Your Position State and argue for your view of what it means to live a decent life. Use examples, and be sure to argue (supply reasons leading to a conclusion) for your position as well. Why is your position the correct one?

V.Conclusion:/Briefly summarize what has been said, make clear what you have argued for, and perhaps indicate in closing some other connections we might think about.
