Peter Singer, The New Yorker writes, is the planet’s “most influential living philosopher” and has recently been named the world’s third most influential contemporary thinker by the Gottlieb Duttweiler Institute. He is one of the founders of Effective Altruism – the movement based on the desire to make the world as good a place as it can be, the use of evidence and reason to find out how to do so, and the audacity to actually try.

In his TED Talk, he works through some surprising thought experiments to help you balance what the head and the heart says – and make the biggest impact in whatever way you can.

We’ll start by showing his TED video (15 minutes), then open to live Q&A over Skype.

This talk is part of the Effective Altruism: Cambridge series.
