The article can be found on Internet. Please just type The Moral Instinctand search about it on Google. I think you can read one on The New York Times.

The introduction need to contain the brief overview of the article, the author, the publication in which the article appeared, the larger conversation in which the argument participates, and identification and explanation of authors overall claim.
The Conclusion need to talk about personal response, which elements of this argument did you personally find particularly persuasive, and why, and what is my general assessment of the overall persuasiveness of this article for an audience of educated readers from a variety of religious, cultural, and philosophical backgrounds.
In this essay, I need at least 5 quote from the article. And it doesnt need the outside research. The source is the article only.
This paper dont required to talk about all proofs and Fallacies in the article.
Just need to pick 5-7 paragraph which contains proofs and fallacies.
If you have any problem, please feel free to ask.
