Recensioner i media

"Julia Driver's admirably clear and concise account of the fundamentals of ethics will serve as an excellent text for introductory courses and beyond, as well as being a good place for the interested lay person to start. She discusses the major questions thoroughly and insightfully, with reference to historical and contemporary works, and uses vivid and entertaining examples." Elinor Mason, University of Edinburgh "An outstanding and highly useful contribution. Driver's introduction to ethics is more responsive to the contemporary philosophical scene than any other that I know of." Michael Slote, University of Miami "Driver's introductory textbook discusses the theories that should be discussed, and does so in an engaging and fair-minded way. The book is not only clear enough for students confronting moral philosophy for the first time but also penetrating enough for more advanced students." Brad Hooker, University of Reading
