In Defense of Animals
A Portrait of Peter Singer

Peter Singer presents the moral philosophy arguments for animal rights.


A printer-friendly version of this page 28 minutes
Produced by Julie Akeret



What Martin Luther King was to civil rights, Australian philosopher Peter Singer is to the animal rights movement. This is an excellent summation of both the philosophical and practical arguments that underpin one of the fastest growing political movements in this country and the world.

According to Singer, the heart of the argument lies in the recognition that we should not discount the pain and suffering of another just because the being that is suffering is not human.

Many believe this is a critical advance in the evolution of our moral thinking, and it is time for all of us to familiarize ourselves with the arguments of the animal rights movement, arguments that are too frequently trivialized or deliberately misrepresented.
