Product description


Shaping the Normative Landscape is bound to shape the philosophical landscape, by contributing to particular philosophical debates and by introducing a new and exciting proposal about how we should understand our normative environment. (Alida Liberman, Ethics)

Shaping the Normative Landscape does two important things. First, it shows how these two general approaches can be reconciled. Second, it shows that some intractable difficulties across a wide range of normative phenomena have both an underlying unity and elegant solution. More importantly, the solution itself is intuitively appealing. (Erin Taylor, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

Changes one's view of an important subject. (Allan Gibbard, The Times Literary Supplement)

ambitious, instructive and sophisticated (Gerald Lang, Analysis)
