Criticize the argument presented by EITHER Thomson or Marquis.

Part I: Begin by telling me which author you are criticizing. Next, summarize the author’s general argument. Start by stating the general conclusion of the argument, and then explain the premises in support of the author’s view. Discuss any ethical theories that might support the argument you are criticizing. Give your own examples to help explain the author’s view. Remember to present the argument in its strongest form. Be sure to include any responses to objections that the author considers in the argument.

Part II: Give at least one objection to the author’s view. You need to explain why one or more of the author’s premise(s) is/are false or explain why the premises do not give enough support for the conclusion. Discuss any ethical theories or principles that might support your objection. Be sure to give examples to help make your position clear. You will be graded on clarity and accuracy, so give as much detail as possible, and be sure that you are criticizing the author’s actual view. You may not use an objection presented by the author, unless you are criticizing the author’s response to that objection. Try to use your own examples in explaining your objection rather than examples we discussed in class
