Peter Singer in Conversation (Melbourne Jewish Writers Festival 2016)

Peter Singer is one of Australia’s most distinguished moral philosophers, and his early work continues to have relevance today. His Animal Liberation (1975) has a new foreword by Yuval Harari, the Israeli author of Sapiens. And Famine, Affluence and Morality, his latest book, reprints his 1972 essay of the same name, which inspired the effective altruism movement – a topic he has also explored in another of his recent books, The Most Good You Can Do.
