For the assignments- Three detailed paragraphs. One quote with quotation marks and cited APA from the book in each of three paragraphs is mandatory. So each paragraph has a quote with quotation marks and cited in APA from the book (three quotes minimum from the book for the assignment). Then discuss the quote by quoting or paraphrasing from at least one of your other sources in each of three paragraphs. Each paragraph has a quote from the book and at least one cited paraphrase or quote from another source. Four total sources for the assignment!
â€¢ Explain the difference between intrinsic value and instrumental value, and give examples of things you take to be valuable in each way. Next, define hedonism. What does the hedonist claim is intrinsically valuable, and what does he claim is instrumentally valuable?
â€¢ Hedonists distinguish between two types of pleasure. Explain this distinction and give examples of each type of pleasure. Which type of pleasure do hedonists claim is more important? Why do you think they say this? Do you agree with this claim?
â€¢ Can you think of any case in which experiencing pleasure fails to contribute to a personâ€™s well-being? If so, consider what a hedonist might say in order to undermine such a case.
â€¢ What are â€œevil pleasuresâ€ and why do they seem to be a problem for hedonism?
â€¢ Do we always have a reason to do whatever would benefit ourselves? How does the desire satisfaction theorist explain the connection between reason and self-interest? Is the desire theorist’s account better than the objective theorist’s? Why or why not?
