2 names come to mind:
.
1. Peter Singer:
Born July 6, 1946 (age 66)
He is an Australian moral philosopher. He is currently the Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, and a Laureate Professor at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. He specialises in applied ethics and approaches ethical issues from a secular, preference utilitarian perspective. He is a major proponent of biocentrism (ethics).
.
2. Ian Hacking:
Born February 18, 1936 (age 76)
Vancouver, British Columbia
