About the Show
Following on from last year’s sold-out events, Singer – ready as ever to question our ethical and philosophical assumptions – will help us explore four of the simplest, yet most important, life choices.
The evening will be divided into four sections, and will address the questions:
- What should I eat?
- What work should I do?
- What should I do for other people?
- Should I have, or have had, children?
Throughout this unique, interactive event we will be guided to reflect on the nature of our choices and what steps we might take to better align our values with our choices in the future. We will consider how we might reconcile our ethical ideals with the imperfect nature of human existence and have the opportunity to discuss and ask questions of one of the world’s greatest thinkers.
As a utilitarian philosopher, Peter Singer seeks to address issues that matter to all of us, outside strict departments of philosophy. Through his books, articles and talks, Singer uses his skills and expertise to expand the public discussion around important ethical issues. He is the author of more than twenty books, including The Most Good You Can Do and Ethics in the Real World.
