Essay #3 -- (Philosophy 1100)

Due Date: Wednesday, June 13 (in class)  <-- Note: change in deadline!


 Read Cragg & Schwartz (pp. 472-486 in your textbook).

Explain the connection that Cragg & Schwartz suggest exists between the principle of "equitable sharing of costs," on one hand, and the principle of "equitable participation," on the other. Is there a convincing argument to be made that an equitable (i.e., fair) sharing of costs (and/or benefits) is most likely to result from a process that ensures equitable participation?

[Hint: The key paragraphs where they make this connection is at the top of p. 484.]

Important Warning About Plagiarism:

"Dalhousie University defines plagiarism as the presentation of the work of another author in such a way as to give one's reader reason to think it to be one's own. Plagiarism is a form of academic fraud.
Plagiarism is considered a serious academic offence which may lead to loss of credit, suspension or expulsion from the University, or even the revocation of a degree."
