About the Author:

Robert C. Solomon is Quincy Lee Centennial Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and the author of numerous books on philosophy and business.

Review:

Written with eloquence and passionate intelligence . . . [Robert Solomon's] provocative book offers a tool for looking at our actions, our institutions, and the hideously unjust world we inhabit. (Publishers Weekly)

. . . a richly developed account of emotions in general and a keen eye for the finely textured character of the moral life. (Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy)

Of all major philosophers, [Robert] Solomon . . . remains the most realistic in offering emotions their central place in how we approach philosophical questions and make sense of the world. . . . In Passion for Justice . . . he offers an American theory of justice―human, clear, shrewd. (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

Here is a beautifully argued book, which describes in eloquent but fully understandable terms a subject of universal importance . . . This is a thought-provoking treatise that never stops to take the easy way out. (Newark Star-Ledger)
