review The Most Good You Can Do

Read Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Peter Singer Peter Singer ´ 0 review review The Most Good You Can Do T good with those resources rather than to those that tug the heartstrings Singer introduces us to an array of remarkable people who are restructuring their lives in accordance with these ideas and shows how paradoxically effective altruism often leads to greater personal fulfilment Peter Singer is Ira W DeCamp Professor of Bioethics Princeton University and Laureate Professor School of Historical and Philosophical Studies University of Melbourne He is the author of th. A uick readThe main gist not all opportunities for charitable giving are created eual We should be donating to the causes and organizations that do the most good How does one evaluate the most good Cost Benefit Analysis of course For example does it make sense to spend 40000 training a seeing eye dog to help one blind person or should we spend the money on operations that restore sight to the blind and cost 100 450 each It s kind of a no brainer isn t itThe book begins by chronicling the life experiences of several effective altruists or people who think rationally about how they use their time and resources to help other people It s anecdotal but it makes you think could I live on a fraction of my current income to have to help the poorThe book at times reads like an advert for GiveWell The author spares them all criticism although he doesn t extend the same treatment to all the book s subjectsAt times thought provoking this book was surprisingly light on philosophy for a book from a philosopher particularly early on Singer s strategy seemed to be to use anecdotes to convince readers of the value of empirically driven giving which was a bit ironic The book does pick up intellectually in later chapters with philosophical justification for effective altruismAltogether a worthwhile introduction to the movement of effective altruism particularly to the unacuainted like me

Read Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Peter Singer Peter Singer ´ 0 review review The Most Good You Can Do Peter Singer often described as the world's most influential living philosopher presents a challenging new movement in the search for an ethical life one that has emerged from his own work on some of the world's most pressing problems Effective altruism involves doing the most good possible It reuires a rigorously unsentimental view of charitable giving urging that a substantial proportion of our money or time should be donated to the organisations that will do the mos. What a weird book Effective altruism sounded very interesting since it s true that tremendous resources are wasted on things that are known to be useless or harmful This book is only vaguely about that It functions OK as a discussion starter on philosophical issues but I think it flops as a practical introduction to the most good you can do There is some good information on that but way too much of the book is devoted to dangerously irrelevant BSSinger starts with and repeatedly brings up the concept that you should abandon whatever you really want to do and go work for a hedge fund so you can make a lot of money and then give it away to charities he recommends If you disagree with him on this then you are against capitalism and all the progress in the world And then he brings up Warren Buffett and his friends giving away their fortunes This is goofy on so many levels that it s hard to know where to start 1st of all Warren Buffett has made statements to the effect that the Wall Street investment advising industry contributes nothing to the economy It s a brain drain for our best and brightest to go to Wall Street instead of doing anything productive Secondly The Gates Foundation which is where Buffett s money is going is a pretty lousy example of effective philanthropy since their efforts in education for example have been spectacular failures In global health the proven effective things that Singer recommends like bed nets are specifically what the Gates Foundation spent years NOT focusing on instead favoring moonshots like a malaria vaccine 3 Even Donald Trump has gone after the hedge fund guys because they don t pay their fair share of taxes effectively taking money away from everyone else How is that ethical or altruistic 4 Beyond a couple of anecdotes where is the evidence that Singer s career advice yields net good The whole point of effectiveness is to do what has been proven to work not what feels good or seems like a frightfully clever idea 5 etc etc etc

Read Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Peter Singer Peter Singer ´ 0 review review The Most Good You Can Do An twenty books including The Life You Can Save Singer was born in Australia He divides his time between New York City and Melbourne 'Peter Singer's status as a man of principles and towering intellect a philosopher extraordinaire if you will is unrivalled in Australia' Sydney Morning Herald 'Peter Singer is a public intellectual par excellence' Monthly 'Peter Singer may be the most controversial philosopher alive; he is certainly among the most influential' New Yorker. I will change the way I donate based on what I ve learned from this book It is a thoughtful rational approach to making charitable donations It was eye opening in many ways things like percent of funds spent on the charitable activity itself is not a marker of effectiveness how donors of small amounts are less likely to be repeat donors when they have evidence that shows a charity is effective and how very small amounts of money can save many lives when donated to the right places The discussions of whether emotional empathy actually increases charitable donations and whether altruism necessarily involves sacrifice were also informative Still I found some of the philosophical arguments unconvincing and even distracting I applaud the application of rational thinking to this field but the irrational aspects of human behavior must be better included
