Item description for Singer and His Critics (Philosophers and their Critics) by Dale Jamieson...
This text is devoted to the work of Peter Singer, one of the leaders of the practical ethics movement and philosopher of the 20th century. Singer's metaethical views, his normative theory, and his substantive positions on such matters as the moral status of animals, the sanctity of human life, and famine relief are all subjected to scrutiny. Singer's replies to his critics importantly supplement what he has previously written and will be essential reading for anyone who wants to fully understand his views. In addition to Singer's replies, this volume contains essays by philosophers from three continents: Richard J. Arneson, Roger Crisp, Lori Gruen, Richard Holton, Frank Jackson, Dale Jamieson, F.M. Kamm, Rae Langton, Colin McGinn, Rolmes Rolston III, Michael Smith, and Robert Solomon. R.M. Hare's previously published rejoinder to Singer, Why I Am Only a Demi-Vegetarian is also included.
