Subject: PETER SINGER’S BOOK, “THE EXPANDING CIRCLE: ETHICS, EVOLUTION AND MORAL PROGRESS.” What is ethics? Where do moral standards come from? Are they based on emotions, reason or some innate sense of right and wrong? For many scientists, the key lies entirely in biology--especially in Darwinian theories of evolution and self-preservation. But if evolution is a struggle for survival, why are we still capable of altruism?
