Editorial Reviews

Winner of the Choice Magazine - Outstanding Academic Title of 1999Award.

"Dale Jamieson's introductory essay, "Singer and the PracticalEthics Movement", is designed not just to give the reader a feelfor what Singer has written and not just to personalize him, whichis important in a volume such as this, but to situate him in alarger social and historical context...The chapter isriveting...Those of us who use Singer's essays in ourcourses...will want to draw upon Jamieson's chapter for backgroundinformation." Keith Burgess-Jackson, University of Texas atArlington, Ethics, July 2000.

"Whether the reader is a Singer neophyte or a person wellacquainted with his works, this anthology will no doubt enlightenher, not only with respect to Singer's positions, but also withrespect to the seeming intractability of ethical problems ingeneral". Antony Skelton, Australasian Journal of Philosophy,December 2001.

"No one alive today has had such a large influence on practicalethics as Peter Singer. Furthermore, his contributions to practicalethics have vividly brought to light central issues in moraltheory. Thus, a volume of essays on his philosophy was an excellentidea. And the end product is very good...the papers in thiscollection rank with the very best recent essays in moralphilosophy". Brad Hooker, University of Reading, Mind, Jan2002
