Reviews

'...a wonderful little book about one of the most well known yet least understood virtues. Scarre has a simple, straightforward writing style that is informative but easy to follow. ...For anyone interested in courage, whether for research or just out of curiosity, this is the book to start with. Highly recommended.' - CHOICE 'Courage is a cardinal virtue and at the core of our everyday, lived morality. It raises some fascinating questions -- can a criminal be courageous? is the courageous person not afraid? -- and yet contemporary philosophers have said surprisingly little about it. So this insightful, open-minded and accessible study will be especially valuable to anyone interested in the morality of the virtues.' - Roger Crisp, St. Anne's College, Oxford, UK
