Question details

Peter Singer (Famine, Influence, Morality http://philosophyfaculty.ucsd.edu/faculty/rarneson/Singeressayspring1972.pdf) argues that we have a duty regarding world poverty. But on what is this sense of duty based? Katian ethics say that moral law is based on a belief that there exists a universal reason we should follow no matter the consequences. Does singer make a compelling case for his position? We can solve an important problem with little to no cost to ourselves, have we (you) done it? if not, why? Not a guilt question, just a philosophical one meant to give insight into the foundations of moral reasoning when considering whats our moral duty to one another.
