Editorial Reviews

"The best accessible guide to “just war” theory, andthe whole Aquinas approach to philosophy, is Applied Ethicsby David S. Oderberg, published by Blackwell." Michael Gove, TheTimes, September 26, 2001 <!--end-->

"It is a robust and uncompromising defence of traditionalvalues." Stuart Reid, The Spectator, 25th November2000

"Not the least merit of Oderberg's treatment of [the themes inApplied Ethics] is attention to the detail of realisticcases. This is casuistry in the true sense, designed to reveal anddevelop the lineaments of our actual moral thinking..." AnthonyO'Hear, Salisbury Review

"Oderberg's discussion of [the] issues is rich and thoughtprovoking. [The] work is, even for non-believers, an important andengaging statement of non-consequentialist moral theory" KasparLippert-Rasmussen, The Philosophical Quarterly, vol. 51, no.204, July 2001

"...very carefully written work that contributes to thediversification of literature available for bioethical formationand which intervenes critically in the ongoing bioethical debate inwestern societies." Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy, Vol.6, 2003
