Praise for the First Edition:

 

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
