Peter Singer - The Ethics of What We Eat

Thursday, November 14, 2013, 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Jonsson Performance Hall
Admission: Free
Season: 2013-14

In 2005 Time Magazine named Peter Singer one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2012, he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, that nation’s highest civic honour. He became widely recognized and regarded internationally after the publication of Animal Liberation in 1975, one of the most important texts on animal ethics. Since then, Singer has written, co-authored, edited and co-edited many important books on ethical issues related to animals, eating, poverty, and bioethics. Some of the titles include: Practical Ethics; The Expanding Circle; How Are We to Live?; Rethinking Life and Death; The Ethics of What We Eat (with Jim Mason) and most recently, The Life You Can Save.    

 

When we think of areas of our daily lives that give rise to ethical concerns, we are more likely to think of sex than of food. But Singer will argue that our choices of what we eat raise major ethical concerns: for animals, for the environment, and for global poverty.
