Reviews

"This collection is essential for any student or teacher of Kantian ethics...She is excellent at conveying 'the big picture', at showing what makes Kant's approach distinctive and compelling." Lara Denis, Philosophy in Review "...this richly suggestive and ingeniously argued group of essays is a welcome addition to algrowing body literature that means to take Kant seriously without checking at the door common notions of decency and prudence." Susan Meld Shell, Review of Metaphysics "She writes with painstaking care, great intelligence and a powerful philosophical imagination. Her sights are often fruitfully turned against utilitarianism and what she sees as much modern ethics' 'misguided emulation of science'.(pxii) Those who agree, as I do, with her rejection of these things can find in Kant's ethical writings an inexhaustible resource that her reading of them does much to illuminate. Those who do not would be foolish to ignore this impressive collection." James Lenman, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice "The papers in this book contain...the heart of Korsgaard's work: a variety of fresh and illuminating insights into Kant's moral theory and its relation to contemporary ethical theory which have helped to reshape the image of Kant's ethics and to refocus the issues dealt with in current moral philosophy." Allen W. Wood, The Philosophical Review "Clearly worth reprinting, Korsgaard's writing sparkles with original explanations and interpretations of Kant." International Studies in Philosophy, Sidney Axinn
