Second Century Lecture by Professor Peter Singer

21 April 2015

When "Animal Liberation" appeared, in 1975, there was very little philosophical discussion about the ethics of our treatment of animals. Now there is an extensive literature and a continuing lively debate. In his Second Century Lecture, Peter Singer will consider how well the arguments of the book have stood up to critical examination, and what interesting questions remain. He will also briefly review the progress that has been made -- or has not been made -- in changing attitudes and practices regarding animals.
