Come and join Exeter Humanist Students, in conjunction with The Essex Humanist Society, on the 24th of October for a short video screening followed by a Q&A through Skype with Princeton University Professor of Bioethics, Peter Singer. Peter Singer is the author of Animal Liberation, first published in 1975 and sometimes referred to as "the bible of the animal movement." His contributions to ethics range from a discussion of our treatment of other animals to our failure to respond adequately to extreme poverty in developing countries. Professor Singer was recognized by Time magazine as one of the world's 100 most influential people, and was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, the nation's highest civilian honour. Aside from this, he is a co-founder of Animals Australia and the founder of The Life You Can Save: an organization dedicated to changing the way people view philanthropy and encouraging effective donations to the impoverished people across the world.

Philosophy student or not, if you are anyone who thinks about the implications of their actions and how we can reduce suffering in the world -- or even why we should, then this will be a great event for you to attend. Location: TBC If you are interested in this kind of talk, you'll probablly be interested in the other events that we run.
