Reviews

"It's hard to think of a better general introduction to contemporary debates in applied ethics and public policy. The editors have enlisted well-known philosophers to pair off on particular controversies, and they do so ably and instructively. This volume will work well as a textbook for university courses." Christopher Morris, University of Maryland "Great writers joining debate on great topics. Cohen and Wellman have assembled an admirably compact volume, given its breadth. It will be of considerable service to teachers of moral problems courses and to anyone with an interest in the cutting edge of applied ethics." David Schmidtz, University of Arizona
