March 23: Ethics and Animals: Lecture by Peter Singer

Join us for a lecture by influential ethicist Peter Singer on ethics and animals. The lecture will be followed by a free catered reception.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential living philosophers, Peter Singer is also known and esteemed in many other fields for his work in medical ethics, famine relief, euthanasia, and environmental ethics. Singer's books, including Animal Liberation and Practical Ethics, have been translated into 15 languages and are widely taught in ethics classes throughout the world. His work is credited with starting the modern animal protection movement. TIME Magazine includes Singer among its "100 most influential people" of 2005.
