Is the judicial execution of the innocent permissible to deter crime? Some advocates of consequentialism would respond yes, while moral absolutists argue that certain kinds of conduct, including this one, are absolutely prohibited, no matter what the consequences. This is the first collection that does justice to absolutism in its richness and subtleties.

MEDIA REVIEWS
. . . outstanding collection of pieces... the reader will almost certainly have at the end the materials with which to make their own assessment of the contending positions. Few anthologies indeed ever achieve this. -- R G. Frey, Bowling Green State University
. . . a clear and sharp introduction which defines strong and weak versions of absolutism and distinguishes absolutism from both consequentialism and more moderate deontological views . . . In addition to providing an excellent textbook, specialists will also benefit from having all of these pieces collected together and ready at hand. * Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy *
