He does this through the device of recounting children's stories of their own experience... It is rare for an adult to put a moral and ethical case quite so succinctly. Children & Society Creative, thought-provoking book ... will interest psychologists and philosophers and any others with a serious interest in developmental psychology and ethics. Choice A game-changing book for the field of Christian ethics... Ethics should be read widely, and not only bythose who are explicitely conducting research involving children and childhood. While it has much to offer these scholars, Ethics real benefit lies in the possibilities that it opens up for both fundamental and practical ethics more broadly conceived.
