Review:

"It is the best anthology on ethical theory, as a matter of fact, it is the best by far."

"This is a great text, one I look forward to using for some time."

"His introductory analyses show a very strong grasp of the subject of each chapter. His ways of making distinctions and putting them into charts or tables is very helpful to teacher and students alike."
