Public Lecture on Ethics and Animals

Invited by the Centre for Bioethics, Prof. Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University gave a public lecture on 'Ethics and Animals' on 23 April in Yasumoto International Academic Park. The lecture attracted an audience of over 200.

Dubbed 'the world's most influential living philosopher' by The New Yorker, Professor Singer has authored 33 books, including the ground-breaking Animal Liberation in 1975, which has influenced the animal rights movement across regions. Professor Singer opened his lecture by accounting for the treatment of animals and attitudes from the past to present, and making comparison to the future trends in the mainland China and the West as a conclusion. It is hoped that more public awareness can be addressed to ethical and animal welfare concerns.
