Reviews

'This is an outstanding collection of clear and well-argued essays across a range of fundamental issues in applied ethics. The authors not only provide state-of-the-art overviews of the debate in each area, but take that debate in new and fruitful directions.' Roger Crisp, University of Oxford, UK.

'This timely collection shows, at its best, not only that moral philosophy can help us to solve a variety of pressing practical questions, but also that applied ethics is an important tool if we want to think hard about basic moral theories.' Torbjörn Tännsjö, Stockholm University, Sweden.
