A Conversation with Peter Singer

At this special event to launch his new book The life you can save: Acting now to end world poverty, Peter Singer will discuss the moral implications of greed and poverty, and his suggestion extreme poverty could be abolished if the world's wealthiest 10 per cent of people donated a fraction of their income.

 

The Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University since 1999, and Laureate Professor at the University of Melbourne since 2005, Professor Singer is an internationally renowned philosopher and acclaimed author of over 25 books on ethics.

 

He is best known for Animal Liberation, widely credited with starting the animal rights movement, and his most recent book The Ethics of What We Eat was a 2006 bestseller.

 

'Peter Singer may be the most controversial philosopher alive; he is certainly among the most influential.' New Yorker
