Editorial Reviews

“Content Coverage is excellent. All necessary topics are covered. Instructors can easily adapt for levels of student abilities and interests.” -Harold Greenstein, SUNY Brockport   “I think the level of scholarship is excellent, providing some context for students but not overwhelming them. It shows that there are serious philosophical debates, but in a way that is appropriate to the kind of student that will be typically taking this course.” -Pauline Kaurin, Pacific Lutheran University   “I am impressed with the style. The presentation is clear and easy to understand.” -Harry McCracken, California Lutheran University   “[The book] introduces the student to the wide range of issues and problems in moral philosophy quite quickly. It was enjoyable to read.” -Philip Cronce, Chicago State University
