Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A rich and complex work...on an important topic, and I find many of Blustein's arguments and his rich, almost phenomenological, descriptions compelling."—Philosophical Review

"Blustein is a particularly interesting moral philosopher because of his continuing discussion of personal ethics....Refreshing and useful....This good book raises all the right questions about partial and impartial commitments."—Cross Currents
