ABSTRACT
Singer, Peter (1946-) is an Australian animal rights activist and philosopher who is credited with inspiring the modern animal rights movement. This movement is an organized effort opposing the use of animals for research, food, and clothing. Animal rights activists believe that animals feel pain and have reasoning ability and should receive greater moral consideration from human beings than human beings generally give them. Singer rejects any form of cruelty to animals.
