"This is a very interesting and innovative approach...[The book includes] a limited number of central topics which are treated in greater depth than in the texts currently on the market. That the material is presented in a way that facilitates dialogical and critical philosophical thinking about the issues is a real plus. I greatly prefer this approach ....[Card's introductions] are better than the introductions I am familiar with in the texts currently on the market." — Louis I. Katzner, Bowling Green State University
"I think this book has some real advantages over the competition. Its editorial material is lively, interesting and comprehensive enough, without being overwhelming; it is highly readable and accessible to the novice reader; and the editorial introductions are very well-done and helpful ....I like the style very much, and I think my students would as well." — Phebe Saunders Haugen, William Mitchell College of Law
"Card will certainly seem the best choice to many people who teach this course." — Anthony Preus, Binghamton University
