not yet rated|write a review
In this second volume, Kamm continues to explore questions of life and death as illustrations of general issues in moral theory. Resuming her development of non- consequentialist ethical theory and its application to practical ethical problems, she explores the distinction between killing andletting die, between harming and not aiding, and between intending and foreseeing harm. This impressive treatment of substantive ethics will prove indispensable for all those interested in moral theory.

Editorial Reviews

"...an impressive display of Frances Kamm's talent for discerning hard-to-see but morally salient differences between apparently similar cases. This, in conjunction with its several theoretical innovations, make the book well worth reading."--The Philosophical Review
