#191: Peter Singer - Morality, Effective Altruism, Ethics & More

Journalists have bestowed on Peter Singer the tag of “world’s most influential living philosopher.”
Peter Singer is an Australian moral philosopher, currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University. He specialises in applied ethics and approaches ethical issues from a secular, utilitarian perspective. He is known in particular for his book Animal Liberation (1975), in which he argues in favour of veganism, and his essay "Famine, Affluence, and Morality", in which he argues in favour of donating to help the global poor.
