One of the world’s leading moral philosophers, Professor Singer explored what it means to live ethically in the 21st Century.

In 2005, Time Magazine named Professor Singer one of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2012, he was made a Companion of the Order of Australia, the nation’s highest civic honour.
