Magnus Vinding is the author of Why We Should Go Vegan, Why “Happy Meat” Is Always Wrong, Speciesism: Why It Is Wrong and the Implications of Rejecting It, Reflections on Intelligence, You Are Them, Effective Altruism: How Can We Best Help Others?, and Suffering-Focused Ethics: Defense and Implications.
I have a degree in mathematics from the University of Copenhagen. Previously, I studied at Roskilde University, where I explored many different fields, such as physics, psychology, philosophy, the history of science, and geology (in which I earned a teaching certificate).
Center for Reducing Suffering
In 2020, I co-founded the Center for Reducing Suffering, whose mission is to reduce severe suffering, taking all sentient beings into account. We develop ethical views that give priority to suffering, and research how to best reduce suffering. Our top priority is to avoid futures with vast amounts of suffering.
