Peter Singer has been described as one of the world's most influential philosophers, as well as one of the most dangerous. This collection, selected by Singer's close colleague and collaborator Helga Kuhse, provides readers with a one-volume account of his underlying philosophy, as well as its practical implications upon everyday living.
Unsanctifying Human Life brings together some of Singer's best and most challenging articles from 1971 to the present. The book includes early critiques of various approaches to philosophy and the role of philosophers, followed by controversial works on the moral status of animals, infanticide, euthanasia, the allocation of scarce health care resources, embryo experimentation, environmental responsibility, and reflections on how we should live.
