A rare academic study on what John Rawls, Peter Singer and Derek Parfit acknowledge as the finest book in ethics - The Methods of Ethics. With a rather shocking conclusion that 'none of us can match Sidgwick', Mariko Nakano-Okuno lucidly analyzes Henry Sidgwick's impacts on contemporary ethics.
MARIKO NAKANO-OKUNO is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the Ohio State University, USA, and an award-winning philosopher/author in Japan. Her work includes 'Sidgwick and Kant: On the So-called 'Discrepancies' between Utilitarian and Kantian Ethics,' in Henry Sidgwick: Happiness and Religion, edited by Bucolo, Crisp & Schultz (2007).
