Moordown Community Centre, Coronation Avenue, Moordown, Bournemouth. BH9 1TW
An introduction to the radical ethical philosophy of Peter Singer, led by David Warden and Matt Coussell.
Philosopher Peter Singer helped launch the worldwide animal rights movement, and has also done significant work towards soliciting vastly more aid for the world's poor.
But is he justified in suggesting we are morally obliged to sacrifice many of our modern pleasures to reduce suffering?*
Are there limits to the demands that morality can make on us?
Come and join us for what promises to be a lively evening, as we investigate, debate and discuss Peter Singer’s challenging morality.
Free entry (donations appreciated)
*If you’d like to get acquainted with Peter's views on our moral obligations to those in poverty, prior to this meeting, have a look at his short paper entitled, ‘Famine, Affluence and Morality’: http://homepages.wmich.edu/~bjr7864/Singer_famine.pdf
