Book of the Week: The Life you Can Save by Peter Singer
"What many of us don't realize, however, is that we each have the opportunity to save the life of a human being every day. In fact, each day we have 18,000 opportunities to do so."
Several different philosophical arguments are explored, as well as the psychology of charitable giving from the perspective of the individual. Singer's socio-political ideologies are well justified and the explanation of the origin of moral duty is impeccably clear, comprehensive, and most importantly persuasive.
