From the Publisher"...Filonowicz marshals an impressively wide range of reading to support his arguments. He has a deep knowledge of relevant historical sources and the accompanying secondary literature. He is generous with intellectual credit, noting antecedents of his arguments in the work of, inter alia, Iris Murdoch and Lawrence Blum (but, crucially, without their sympathies towards moral realism). Any book that seeks to expose moral philosophy to that which, following Henry Miller, the author calls ‘the open streets’ of Brooklyn is a departure from the usual style of works on meta-ethics and is all the better for it. The author is to be commended for trying to open up contemporary meta-ethics to some distinctive and, in some respects, neglected options from the ethical reflection of the past."
- ALAN THOMAS, Analysis Reviews, Volume 69
"...a refreshingly well-written and wide ranging volume with much to offer philosophers and others interested in the history of ethics."
