Reviews - What do customers think about The Quest for Moral Foundations: An Introduction to Ethics?

Good! Great!  Jun 29, 2003
A concise, and lucid and systematic introduction to ethical theories still prevailing nowadays.
The contents of the book are arranged in ways that lead readers to many topics progressively and in ways that weave these theories into a logically inter-connected whole, while the author's own position is clearly unfolded. The author has his own position! For example, he suggests that the ancient Greek's virtue ethics can be made, in some way, consistent with Kant's duty ethics (p. 104). This position needs more arguments, of course, than is presented in that book, but it is undeniably revealing, especially to beginners. This book has really done a fine job for those intending to come to terms with the ethics. Being a good book, it needs to be updated and needs to be more concerned with the contemporary issues. We hope to see its revised and enlarged edition come out soon!
