Together with Audi's previous books on epistemology, action, and practical reasoning, this collection establishes Audi as one of the most careful systematic philosophers working today ... He sympathetically interprets all sides in a debate, then painstakingly carves out an intermediate position that usually recognizes some truth in each opponent ... Audi is a systemizer. This makes his views rich and important ... Audi is a subdivider. This makes his views precise ... Audi's positions are developed with more than enough subtlety and force to make his essays essential and helpful reading for all professors and graduate students who work on any of the main topics that he discusses. * Walter Sinnott-Armstrong, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 2: 1999 *
"In defending ethical intuitionism, objective values and objective reasons for action, Audi swims against the stream. People interested in ethical theory should read this book to make sure they are headed in the right direction."-Bruce Russell, Wayne State University
"This extremely ambitious book reconfirms Audi's status as one of the most prominent philosophers writing about ethics and its relationship to other fields, especially epistemology....Important not only for Audi's sophisticated intuitionist theory, but also for its clarification of major alternatives to intuitionism."-Bernard Gert, Dartmouth College>
"Significant, carefully argued, broad in scope."-Roger Crisp, St. Anne's College, Oxford
