About the Author:

The late Dr. Oliver A. Johnson studied at Oxford University in England, and received his doctorate in philosophy from Yale University. He was one of the founding faculty members of University of California at Riverside, and was chairman of the philosophy department. He served as the Academic Senate Chairman and secretary-treasurer of the American Philosophical Association Pacific Division. He is known for his writings on ethics and the foundations of knowledge.

Andrews Reath has written extensively on many aspects of Kant's ethics. He has also edited (with Barbara Herman and Christine M. Korsgaard) RECLAIMING THE HISTORY OF ETHICS: ESSAYS FOR JOHN RAWLS (Cambridge University Press, 1997).

Review:

"This is an outstanding text for introducing undergraduate students to the history of the development of ethics as it unfolded in the western world." -- Margaret Monahan Hogan, University of Portland

"I believe that given the fine choice of historically relevant articles on philosophical ethics and because of its pedagogical features, it is a worthy contender as a textbook to be used in introductory ethics course." -- Miguel Endara, Los Angeles Pierce College

"I have used this exemplary text book for years; I wouldn't do without this book for at least three of my classes." -- Lorraine Marie Arangno, Ph.D., University of Colorado at Colorado Springs

"A good source of readings by the main moral philosophers throughout the history of ethics." -- Hadley T Michell, Taylor University
