  • Includes coverage of metaethics, normative ethics, and practical ethics
  • Reaches beyond traditional texts by also including important, but usually

    responsibility, and ethical particularism
  • Raises questions about the status and rational authority of morality

Recensione:

This collection is a very welcome addition. It is remarkable for the breadth of issues discussed and the diversity of positions represented. Throughout, the selections have been chosen with a keen eye for excellence and accessibility. Taken together, they provide a vivid panorama of ethical theory today.
Peter Railton, University of Michigan

It is a wonderfully comprehensive collection that manages to bring together well–chosen papers on a number of significant areas in moral theory.
Geoff Sayre–McCord, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
