Session Leader: Dilip Barman readings:
Readings from Tom Regan and Andrew Linzey's 2010 book "Other Nations" (ISBN 978-160258237-8). I would like students to read: > * pp. 117-124, "The Dead Body and the Living Brain" by Oriana Fallaci
Ignoring the Role of Animals in Medicine is Shortsighted
Why Animal Rights?
2. Enhancement -- Allen Buchanan on Enhancement:
Readings: For this discussion, I would like students to read the attached article, by John Paul Wright, Francis T. Cullen, and Kevin M. Beaver, called "Does Punishment Work?" (SEE BELOW LINK) from, Hugh LaFollette's (ed) Ethics in Practice, 3rd Edition. I would also like students to read a short piece by Michelle Alexander from the Huffington Post called "The New Jim Crow: How the War on Drugs Gave Birth to a Permanent American Undercaste" that can be found at this link:
http://philosophia.uncg.edu/node/283 (For this one reading the whole thing would be great, but since that might put me over the limit they really only need to read from "Of course, there is one glaring problem with sentimentalism.")
This is a last-minute addition on 10/31. Students are, of course, not required to read it but in case they find the session interesting I wanted them to be able to access it later: http://www.smh.com.au/national/feeling-our-way-to-decision-20090227-8k8v.html
Readings (and videos):

Choose one of the essays from this page: http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/04/20/magazine/ethics-eating-meat.html
Assigned Reading: http://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/war/ . Students read all of the links under the heading “Doctrine of the Just War.” Students should also read about the usage of drones (or unmanned aerial vehicles) in warfare. This link to related stories in the New York Times provides useful reading on the subject.
See two articles attached for readings.
YouTube video on the Trolley Problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fs0E69krO_Q.
Readings: Here is an opinionated but thoughtful (and fairly long) blog post, by NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen, that raises some of the issues we'll discuss. Note: the post contains numerous other links and video, but it is not at all necessary for students to look at those, though they are free to do so if particular links or video strike them as interesting or essential to evaluating Rosen's post. For students who want some more background on some of the recent events surrounding the NSA leaks, here is a helpful interactive timeline from Al Jazeera America.
