An AMA with Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation, The Life You Can Save, Practical Ethics, and The Most Good You Can Do.
Since 1999 I've been the Ira W. DeCamp professor of Bioethics at Princeton University. I've written or edited about 40 books. In 2005, Time magazine named me one of the world's 100 most important people. I am also the founder of The Life You Can Save [http://www.thelifeyoucansave.org], an effective altruism group that encourages people to donate money to the most effective charities working today. I am here to answer questions about ... well, about whatever you like, really, in ethics, but especially about my most recent book, Famine, Affluence and Morality, published on December 1 by Oxford University Press. It contains a classic essay I wrote in 1972 that has been read by many of the founders of the effective altruism movement, and also has two other essays and a new introduction, as well as a preface by Bill and Melinda Gates. https://global.oup.com/academic/product/famine-affluence-and-morality-9780190219208?cc=us&lang=en&
Thanks everyone for your questions! Sorry, I had to go at 4pm, so apologies to all those whose questions I could not answer.
