Peter Singer's Ethics

Australian philosopher Professor Peter Singer has a reputation for taking very radical positions, including on such issues as euthanasia, giving much, much more to the poor and whether or not life is actually worth living. And these are just a few examples of a very wide range of issues he has addressed over the years. If you are someone who is happy to be challenged by radical views you don't agree with then there is an easy way to get a taste of what Professor Singer believes. It comes in the form of new collection of essays - 86 in all - entitled Ethics in the Real World, published last year by Text Publishing. One of the very appealing aspects of the book (at least for me) is that the essays are usually just two or three pages long. Definitely worth the $33 price tag.
