An Evening with Peter Singer - Brisbane

Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre

14 Aug, 2021

What does it really mean to be a good person? What is the value of a good deed? Is it even important to be good in a world that constantly rewards bad people?

They're important questions that are becoming harder to answer, especially as we enter a post-Trump and (hopefully) post-COVID world. If you’re kept up at night wrestling with these thoughts, we've got the cure for what ails you - Think Inc. proudly presents An Evening with Peter Singer.

Once labelled “the most dangerous man in the world”, Peter’s arguments are founded on a simple idea - utilitarianism; a theory that states the most ethical choice, in any situation, is the one that provides the greatest good for the greatest number.

This concept underpins all of Peter’s work, and was the basis for his 2009 seminal book The Life You Can Save. He’s also responsible for the revolutionary Animal Liberation: A New Ethics for Our Treatment of Animals.

Peter is an intellectual heavyweight and we are thrilled to be touring him around Australia and New Zealand in August 2021.

- Livestreamed Event
We understand that some fans of Peter Singer would love to attend this event in person, but are uneasy with coming out to large-scale events. That’s why we’re proud to offer a Virtual Event option - click here to learn more.
