Peter Singer

2 posts in this topic

I am sure many of you here are familiar with Peter Singer. What is your opinion of him and what works do you like and dislike about him? Obviously we read a lot of his stuff in my moral philosophy class and I agreed with some things but other things I thought were ridiculous. He has been brought to my attention again and he perfectly states how I feel about capitalism...

"Capitalism is very far from a perfect system, but so far we have yet to find anything that clearly does a better job of meeting human needs than a regulated capitalist economy coupled with a welfare and health care system that meets the basic needs of those who do not thrive in the capitalist economy."

What are your opinions?

Although I'm not familiar with Singer, that I know of, I have a habit of not paying attention to the author sometimes when I read articles. I have to agree with what you said about capitalism. Its not perfect but try to find something better.

I think you can judge a society on how it takes care of its most venerable members basic needs.
