Once labelled “the most dangerous man in the world”, Peter’s a philosopher whose arguments are founded on a simple idea - utilitarianism; a theory that states the most ethical choice, in any situation, is the one that provides the greatest good for the greatest number.
This concept underpins all of Peter’s work and was the basis for his 2009 seminal book The Life You Can Save. He’s also responsible for the revolutionary Animal Liberation: A New Ethics for Our Treatment of Animals.
Today, his ideas need to be amplified greatly. If we had fought against the immoral and unnecessary institutional cruelty imposed on animals for their meat, we may have avoided the COVID-19 crisis altogether. If global populations adopted the tenets of utilitarianism, polarising figures like Trump may never have found office.
Peter is an intellectual heavyweight and we are thrilled to be touring him around Australia and New Zealand in August 2021.
