Pressestimmen"...the discussions of higher goods and moral epistemology are quite useful, and the book as a whole is valuable in offering an unusually systematic treatment of a central concept of ethical theory." Ethics "In each case the discussion is controlled and acute and the conclusions provide significant challenges." Canadian Philosophical Reviews "Despite its rather slender size, Professor Lemos's book is philosophically very rich." Paul Eisenberg, International Philosophical Quarterly
