Event Details:

This talk is part of the Arrow Lecture Series (sponsored by the Center on Ethics) and also part of The Ethics of Food & the Enviornment series (sponsored by the Program in Ethics in Society).

Singer's "Animal Liberation" a book is sometimes credited with starting the modern animal rights movement. In the book Singer argued that "all animals are equal." The claim is often misunderstood, and sometimes used to caricature the animal movement. In this lecture Singer will explain what he means by the claim, why it is something that we all ought to accept, and what its implications are for our everyday life.

Peter Singer is the Ira W. Decamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University.

At the event, Stanford Bookstore will be sellling several of Singer's books. The author will be signing books after the talk.
