Bioethicist Peter Singer has received death threats for his views on incendiary topics such as infanticide and animals rights. Singer -- an Australian Jew who is considered to be one of the most influential living philosophers -- will lecture about how art depicts animals on May 24 at the Getty Center, in conjunction with the Getty Museum exhibition, "Oudry's Painted Menagerie."
