about

Most of us believe that there are limits to the sacrifices that morality can demand of us. We also think that certain types of acts are simply forbidden, even when necessary for promoting the overall good. Here Kagan argues that attempts to defend these sorts of moral limit are inadequate.In thus rejecting two of the most fundamental features of commonsense morality, the book offers a sustained attack on our ordinary moral views.

`The two points to stress about this book are: it is full of arguments that are themselves formidable. And it gives proper attention to pivotal but largely neglected issues.' Mind
