important things: ethics

A friend of mine sent me the above video several days ago, and I cannot recommend it enough to all of you. Singer has a way about him--approachable and pragmatic, reflecting on the ivory tower rather than looking down from it. I am ashamed to say that I have not yet read any of his books--in point of fact, my first exposure to him was via the excellent film by Astra Taylor, Examined Life. I find him (as I hope you will too) to be refreshingly sane and compassionate. Although my present reading list is filled with more Hegel and Hegelians than you or I could shake a stick at, I plan on finding some time for Singer. In the meantime, do take a look at his website.
