Reviews


"This is a competent, clear, and evenhanded assessment of the relevance of Kant's thought for current moral debates.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty."  (Choice, 1 October 2012)

"Kant and Applied Ethics is a stimulating attempt to assess the relevance of Kantian theory for contemporary moral problems. Kantian moral philosophers will find much to disagree with, but there is no doubt that the book raises important puzzles for Kantian moral theory. Those unpersuaded by Kantian theory may find ammunition to use against Kantianism. Those who wish to defend Kant's theory may find a helpful formulation of some serious challenges to Kant's moral philosophy."  (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, 30 June 2012)
