'Peter Singer is the most influential living philosopher. We need people like him to keep us honest, make us think and help us to be better than we presently are.' Independent Love him or hate him, you certainly can't ignore him. A passionate founder of the modern animal rights movement, Singer challenges our most closely held beliefs about infanticide, euthanasia, the legal rights and moral obligations of all species, and much more, with arguments that intrigue as often and as powerfully as they incite. Writings on an Ethical Life presents a comprehensive collection of Singer's best and most provocative writing, as chosen by Singer himself. After a successful publication in its first edition, this acclaimed collection draws together Singer's best and most provocative writing for a wider audience.
