An Evening with Peter Singer - Brisbane

BCEC Brisbane

29 Mar, 2022

Since 1975 to this moment, Peter Singer has helped thousands of individuals shape their moral foundation from which to live and base the long list of decisions we make every day. “Few academic philosophers have ever had the impact of Peter Singer”, Kwame Anthony Appiah recently said when awarding Peter the 2021 Berggruen Prize for Philosophy and Culture.

Since the beginning, Peter’s work has been guided by one principle: “If it is in our power to prevent something bad from happening, without thereby sacrificing anything of comparable moral importance, we ought, morally, to do it.”

Over five decades Peter has never shied away from difficult and controversial conversations and inspired countless people around the world to do the same. In 1975 his book Animal Liberation paved the way for the animal rights movement, and in 2009 his guide to ending world poverty, The Life You Can Save, sparked the global Effective Altruism movement. In 2021 he co-founded The Journal of Controversial Ideas, an answer to echo chambers and cancel culture stifling rational discourse.

Buy your tickets today to see logos in action, quite the spectacle in 2022! A mind like Peter’s is a rare gem, and this is a unique chance to explore issues such as animal welfare, effective altruism, free speech, and mandatory vaccinations with the world’s most famous utilitarian philosopher alive today.
