The Most Good You Can Do

Peter Singer shows how living altruistically often leads to greater personal fulfillment than living for oneself.


Peter Singer shows how living altruistically often leads to greater personal fulfillment than living for oneself. His most recent book is The Most Good You Can Do, which helps to develop the challenges Singer has made to those who donate to the arts, and to charities focused on helping our fellow citizens, rather than those for whom we can do the most good. Effective altruists are extending our knowledge of the possibilities of living less selfishly, and of allowing reason, rather than emotion, to determine how we live.

All profits from this event will be donated to the Against Malaria Foundation.

The event will be chaired by philosopher Nigel Warburton.

Nigel Warburton is a freelance philosopher, writer, and podcaster. He is author of A Little History of Philosophy, interviewer for the popular Philosophy Bites podcast, and most recently wrote 48 animation scripts to accompany the BBC Radio 4 ‘History of Ideas’ series.

Peter Singer is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and a Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. He specialises in applied ethics and approaches ethical issues from a secular, utilitarian perspective.

Both authors' books will be available to purchase from Newham Bookshop on the night. A book signing will follow the talk and a cash bar will be available.
