Princeton professor Peter Singer has been called “the world’s most influential living philosopher.” But he may be as controversial as he is influential.
It’s perhaps fitting, then, that he is a founding editor of a new academic publication called the Journal of Controversial Ideas. The journal claims to be the world’s “first open access, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal specifically created to promote free inquiry on controversial topics.”
On today’s episode of So to Speak: The Free Speech Podcast, we are joined by professor Singer to discuss the journal, academic freedom, and his own personal brushes with controversy.
