From the Publisher"Clairmont has given us a significant contribution to comparative ethics and comparative theology more broadly. Best of all, Clairmont reflects in depth on the current discussion concerning the hermeneutics of comparison. I strongly recommend this book."
—Rev. James L. Fredericks, Ph.D. Loyola Marymount University
"Over the past several years, comparative religious ethics has emerged as a centrally important interdisciplinary line of research, crossing the boundaries among religious studies, history, anthropology, and ethics. David Clairmont's book offers a strikingly original contribution to this emerging field."
—Jean Porter, John A. O'Brien Professor of Theological Ethics, University of Notre Dame
"David Clairmont is one of a new generation of scholars who possess the requisite philological and philosophical skills to undertake serious comparative study of thinkers from radically different traditions. This work shows what we have been missing up to now. It offers meticulous comparisons between them on issues such as sacramental and meditative practices, understandings of the cultivation of virtue, and the nature and purpose of religious and ethical languages, and he has acute and thought-provoking things to say on all of them. This book is part of a new era in religious ethics."
—Charles Mathewes, University of Virginia
