'the finest most encyclopedic book devoted to understanding the nature of human well-being and its moral importance written this century' David Sobel, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 'There is a tendency in some utilitarian writings to neglect or deny the complexity of ethical thought and practice. James Griffin, by contrast, is alive to this complexity ... suggests more sensitive and less doctrinaire utilitarianism than many have thought possible.' Samuel Scheffler in The Times Literary Supplement 'This is an important and fascinating book ... this is a valuable study for a very wide audience of theoretical and applied researches. Since receiving the review copy, our research team have consulted it almost daily and we are grateful to the author for condensing such an essential literature.' Caroline Selai and Rachel Rosser, BMAS Newsletter, Summer '93
