9781841155500: WRITINGS ON AN ETHICAL LIFE

'Peter Singer is the most influential living philosopher. We need people like him to keep us honest, make us think and help us to be better than we presently are.' Independent Love him or hate him, you certainly can't ignore him. A passionate founder of the modern animal rights movement, Singer challenges our most closely held beliefs about infanticide, euthanasia, the legal rights and moral obligations of all species, and much more, with arguments that intrigue as often and as powerfully as they incite. Writings on an Ethical Life presents a comprehensive collection of Singer's best and most provocative writing, as chosen by Singer himself. After a successful publication in its first edition, this acclaimed collection draws together Singer's best and most provocative writing for a wider audience.

About the Author:

Peter Singer is the author of Animal Liberation, Practical Ethics, and Rethinking Life and Death, among many others. He currently is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University's Center for Human Values. He lives in New York City.

Review:

'Singer's influence extends to the world beyond the ivory tower because he writes with such lucidity and passion about genuinely pressing questions. Disagree with him as you may, Peter Singer is a force to be reckoned with.' Economist 'Peter Singer is one of a rare species: the practical philosopher. His publications on animal rights, euthanasia, justifiable infanticide and ethical foreign policy have often resulted in changes in the law. Writings on an Ethical Life presents an excellent opportunity to read in collected form what in many cases are the definitive texts from which entire movements have been born.' Sunday Herald 'Singer writes with cool lucidity, passing patiently from premise to conclusion, always nudging his readers to question their own prejudices. Daily Telegraph 'Peter Singer!has probably had a larger popular readership than any professional philosopher since Bertrand Russell, and more success in effecting changes in acceptable behaviour.' The New England Journal of Medicine 'Peter Singer is the most influential living philosopher. We need people like him to keep us honest, make us think and help us to be better than we presently are.' Independent
