Winner of the Choice Magazine - Outstanding Academic Title of 1999 Award."Dale Jamieson's introductory essay, "Singer and the Practical Ethics Movement", is designed not just to give the reader a feel for what Singer has written and not just to personalize him, which is important in a volume such as this, but to situate him in a larger social and historical context...The chapter is riveting...Those of us who use Singer's essays in our courses...will want to draw upon Jamieson's chapter for background information." Keith Burgess-Jackson, University of Texas at Arlington, Ethics, July 2000."Whether the reader is a Singer neophyte or a person well acquainted with his works, this anthology will no doubt enlighten her, not only with respect to Singer's positions, but also with respect to the seeming intractability of ethical problems in general". Antony Skelton, Australasian Journal of Philosophy, December 2001."No one alive today has had such a large influence on practical ethics as Peter Singer. Furthermore, his contributions to practical ethics have vividly brought to light central issues in moral theory. Thus, a volume of essays on his philosophy was an excellent idea. And the end product is very good...the papers in this collection rank with the very best recent essays in moral philosophy". Brad Hooker, University of Reading, Mind, Jan 2002
This is the first book devoted to the work of Peter Singer, one of the leaders of the practical ethics movement, and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century.
