Update: For a Review of this Event, Please Read Are We Climbing the Same Mountain? by James Goodrich.

——————————————————————————————-

Mark your calendars!

This September, the Humanist Chaplaincy at Rutgers University will be hosting a public discussion between Philosophers Charles Camosy and Peter Singer on Christian and Secular Ethics.  The discussion will be moderated by Jeff McMahan, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University.

Charles Camosy is Assistant Professor at Fordham University.  In his research he focuses Bioethics, Catholic Social Teaching, Moral Anthropology, Distributive Justice, Biotechnology and the Philosophy of Biology, Intersection of Christian and Secular Ethics, and Intellectual Solidarity.  His most recent book Peter Singer and Christian Ethics: Beyond Polarization focuses on finding common ground between Singer’s utilitarianism and the natural law ethics of the Catholic Church.

Peter Singer is the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University.  He is known for a wide range of positions in secular ethics, most notably in regard to utilitarianism, our moral relationships with animals and duties to the world’s needy.  He is author of a number of books, most recently The Life You Can Save: How to do Your Part to End World Poverty.
