"Over the past several years, comparative religious ethics hasemerged as a centrally important interdisciplinary line ofresearch, crossing the boundaries among religious studies, history,anthropology, and ethics. David Clairmont's book offers astrikingly original contribution to this emerging field."
—Jean Porter, John A. O'Brien Professor of TheologicalEthics, University of Notre Dame
"David Clairmont is one of a new generation of scholars whopossess the requisite philological and philosophical skillsto undertake serious comparative study of thinkers from radicallydifferent traditions. This work shows what we have been missing upto now. It offers meticulous comparisons between them on issuessuch as sacramental and meditative practices, understandings of thecultivation of virtue, and the nature and purpose of religious andethical languages, and he has acute and thought-provoking things tosay on all of them. This book is part of a new era in religiousethics."
