Review:

A short review cannot hope to do justice to all the interesting (and controversial) material to be found in these dedicatory essays. (Michael Slote, Philosophical Quarterly)

To be welcomed for more reasons than one. Most obviously, it is fitting that Foot's salutary influence on moral theory should be celebrated by such a fine set of papers ... the papers in the volume have much to offer. (Times Literary Supplement)

The twelve contributors include many distinguished philosphers; their varied contributions go to a set of themes distilled in Foot's own collection Virtues and Vices ... still a great pleasure to read, with its unfailing clear-headedness, its harmony of conviction and modesty, and the honest and unfussy directness of its arguments. Moreover, it is still philosophically instructive and provocative; as the essays in this Festschrift show. (Margaret Urban Walker, Fordham University, International Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. XXXVII, No.2, Issue No. 146, June 1997)
