"His [Blum's] examples are illuminating, and he gives a useful step-by-step summary of how a person moves from moral perception to action based on principle." Ethics "This is a complex book, and it raises important challenges to traditional moral theories... all moral theorists, regardless of their preferences, will benefit from this work." Philosophical Books "If there are any doubts that the writings of Iris Murdoch have spawned creative work in moral philosophy, Lawrence Blum's recent collection of essays should put them to rest...Blum's collection has much to commend it."
