Linacre College is proud to host Professor Peter Singer’s lecture “From Moral Neutrality to Effective Altruism: The Changing Scope and Significance of Moral Philosophy”.

Professor Singer is often described as the world’s most influential living philosopher. In 2005 Time magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2014 he was third on the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute’s ranking of Global Thought Leaders. He is known especially for his work on the ethics of our treatment of animals, and for his controversial critique of the sanctity of life ethics in bioethics.

In 2012 he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, the nation’s highest civic honour.
