Product details

Product Description


"This new anthology is the best textbook in moral theory by far. The selections are a judicious combination of the classic and the new, carefully and skillfully edited." - David McNaughton, Florida State University, USA

"The text is well structured and the readings well chosen: they are important, interesting, varied, popular and up-to-date. The book serves as a fine representation of essential work in analytic moral philosophy." - Helena de Bres, Wellesley College, USA

"These readings have clearly been selected with great care, and Sher's introductions provide just the right amount of guidance and narrative coherence. The result is an impressively wide-ranging yet student-friendly textbook, one of the best ethics anthologies out there." - Neal Tognazzini, College of William and Mary, USA

good book 17 May 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book, I read most of the assigned material and that was all though. I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn more about ethics. In the end I felt I was just as confused as when I started that course.
