Vegetarian Club to Host Discussion with Peter Singer
Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes to produce the food you eat?
A week from today, the Penn State Vegetarian Club will be joined by renowned author Peter Singer, a man well versed in the field of bioethics. Singer has built himself quite a rep. The New Yorker recognized him as “the world’s most influential living philosopher.” Time has featured him on its annual listing of the world’s 100 most influential people. He is crowned the father of modern bioethics.
Singer, a native of Australia, a graduate from both Melbourne and Oxford Universities, and a professor at Princeton, will pay Penn State a visit at 4 p.m. in 10 Sparks. His lecture will be primarily based off his 2006 novel, “The Ethics of What We Eat,” which was cowritten with Jim Mason.
He will be discussing and surfacing what is kept hidden in the shadows regarding food production. But fortunately, it’s not all grim. He will also touch on buying local or “fair trade” products, sustainability, and the ways to avoid the downside of the food market. The audience may even expect a comedic edge to Singer’s discussion, making for an event worth seeing.
