This review is from: Peter Singer and Christian Ethics: Beyond Polarization (Hardcover)Peter Singer unsurprisingly attracts much rhetoric in response to his often controversial views. This masterly critique of his writings is to be commended therefore for its temperate tone, as well as its cogent counter-arguments to many of Singer's conclusions.
However the uniqueness of this book is its remarkable and, to this reader at least, very enlightening emphasis on the areas of philosphical reasoning where Singer and Christianity (and especially Catholicism) agree and the book clearly demonstrates that there are lots of them.
Little wonder then that Camosy has won the rare accolade of a cover commendation by the very philosopher under scrutiny. Even Singer himself is won over, as evidenced by his ringing endorsement of the book "as a valuable contribution to philosophy in general, and to applied ethics in particular". It certainly is and anyone interested in Singer - as a fan or foe, should read it.
