Thought-provoking and brimming with interesting ideas. * Social Theory and Practice, July 2010 *
This book exhibits all of the virtues of Stephen Kershnar's work in general: it is highly intelligent, philosophically sophisticated, and both penetrating and provocative. Kershnar offers an alternative to the 'standard' treatment of desert and his discussions of the various dimensions of the concept of desert are engaging, well-informed by relevant literature, and illuminating. Desert and Virtue is admirably concise and fun to read. -- John Fischer, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of California, Riverside
Despite the book's deceptively simple thesis, and its brevity, the author's argument presumes close familiarity with the sprawling, intricate vocabulary of contemporary meta-ethics. It also requires extensive attention to the current academic literature in analytic ethics. Kershnar's work is well laid out and supported and researched and engages interesting questions....It is recommended...primarily for professional philosophers and other academic researchers interested in foundational questions in contemporary meta-ethics. * Metapsychology Online *
