Peter Singer discusses his recently released book "Why Vegan? How to Eat Ethically" with fellow philosopher Andrew Chignell.

Even before the publication of his seminal Animal Liberation in 1975, Peter Singer, one of the greatest moral philosophers of our time, unflinchingly challenged the ethics of eating animals.

Now Singer brings together the most consequential essays of his career to make a devastating case against our failure to confront what we are doing to animals, to public health, and to our planet. He is joined by fellow philosopher Andrew Chignell to discuss the ethics of the choices we make about food every day.

Peter Singer is Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University. The best-selling author of Animal Liberation and The Ethics of What We Eat, among other works, he also teaches at the University of Melbourne. Andrew Chignell is professor at Princeton University with appointments in Religion, Philosophy, and the University Center for Human Values. He is co-editor of Philosophy Comes to Dinner and teaches a course at Princeton on 'The Ethics of Eating.' 


This event is presented in partnership with Labyrinth Books, Princeton University's Center for Human Values, the Princeton University Council for the Humanities,  the High Meadows Environmental Institute at Princeton University, and  the Food, Ethics, Psychology Conference.
