It’s easy to assume that humans are primarily self-interested, from taking a look at our modern lives, with all their social and environmental problems. However, renowned philosopher Peter Singer argues that we do not have to accept the bleak view that humans are selfish by nature.

He says the biggest problem is that people don’t know how to live ethically, so he provides ways to strengthen our minds so we can create happier, more fulfilled lives.

Firstly explaining the history of ethical thought, Singer then uses the Japanese culture to point out how ethics operate in their culture as opposed to Western culture, and shows how ethical living is beneficial for all.
