What People are Saying About This
"In his enjoyable and informative book *The Evolution of Morality*, Richard Joyce distinguishes between explaining how natural selection might explain socially useful behavior in animals and what more is needed to explain morality, with its thoughts about right or wrong, in human beings. Contrary to what others have said, Joyce argues plausibly that, to the extent that our moral concepts and opinions are the results of natural selection, there is no rational basis for these concepts and opinions."Gilbert Harman, Department of Philosophy, PrincetonUniversity
