Peter Singer, a moral philosopher and human and animal rights advocate, will come to Morningside College virtually via Google Hangouts to give a lecture on “The End of Poverty” at 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 4 in the UPS Auditorium in the college’s Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Ave.
The lecture will focus on ideas presented in Singer’s 2009 book “The Life You Can Save: How to Do Your Part to End World Poverty.”
Singer has been recognized as one of the most influential contemporary philosophers for his work in applied ethics. He is currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and a laureate professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne in Australia.
The event is part of Morningside’s Hickman-Johnson-Furrow Virtual Lecture Series. The college broadcasts the lectures on campus and will provide a recording online afterward.
