Review:

"The book reinforces the conviction that reasonable, undogmatic answers can be given to the main question of ethics." -Robert Arrington, Georgia State University "Unusually rigorous. The best and most thorough treatment of foundational issues that I have seen . . . The discussion of abortion is outstanding." -Thomas Carson, Loyola University of Chicago
