About the Author:

James P. Sterba is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame. He is the author of numerous books including Morality in Practice, 6th Edition (1996) and Three Challenges to Ethics (2000).

Review:

'John Christman has a wonderful grasp of the large layout of the field and of the detailed positions within it. He writes with tremendous clarity. It was a joy to read. I can't recommend the book more highly.' - Michael Morgan, Indiana University, USA

'Reading John Christman's Social and Political Philosophy, I marvel at how well he has been able to capture particularly the internal critique among liberals concerning the substance of their view. Christman is also an important contributor to this discussion himself and, therefore, he writes not only as someone who simply observes this discussion from afar. This is a clear advantage to the work... I would like to use it in one of my Social and Political Philosophy courses.' - James Sterba, Notre Dame University, USA
