Boston GlobeCharles Fried of the Harvard Law School has made an important contribution to the literature of ethics . 'On all great subjects much remains to be said,' wrote John Stuart Mill. Professor Fried has said it with great elegance.
The New LeaderFried's approach is indeed an important corrective to utilitarian calculations that are often all too ready to sacrifice individuals... on the altar of the greatest good... [This is] a well-written and provocative volume, containing discussions of many important issues.
Philosophical BooksThe most outstanding feature of this book is the lucid account it presents of the workings of ordinary morality with regard to what the individual and the state may, may not, and must do.
