Talking Heads - Peter Singer
Once described as “A man with plastic shoes and ironclad principles,” Peter Singer is well known as one of the leading thinkers behind the move to defend the rights of animals and says his book, Animal Liberation, is the most important book he has written.
Peter studied combined Law/Arts at Melbourne University, focusing on Philosophy and was offered a scholarship at Oxford. In 1977 Peter was appointed to a chair at Monash University and became the first Director of the Human Bioethics Centre. These days he divides his time between professorships at Princeton, USA, and the University of Melbourne. Many of his writings on issues such as euthanasia, infanticide, stem cells research and the troops in Iraq have been fiercely criticized, but regardless Peter remains true to his philosophies.
