The writing style is perfectly pitched, the examples are vivid and memorable, and the concepts are thoroughly discussed. * Scott James, University of North Carolina Wilmington *
The clarity of Shafer-Landau's writing is almost unparalleled, and the examples that he uses (both real and imagined) are pedagogical treasures. He does a remarkable job of explaining very complex philosophical theories in a thoroughly engaging yet eminently clear fashion. * Aleksander Pjevalica, University of Texas at El Paso *
The Fundamentals of Ethics is an outstanding introductory text. It does an excellent job of presenting complex ideas at an introductory level, while deftly helping students understand the practical import of ethical theory. Its analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each of the normative theories is cogently presented. Perhaps its most salient feature is its handling of metaethical issues, which speaks directly to the presuppositions students often have about ethical reasoning. Shafer-Landau's approach clearly shows the experience of someone who has taught this material in the classroom and understands common student assumptions and concerns. This is a very impressive introduction. And the price is substantially lower than that of the Rachels text. * Matthew J. Fitzsimmons, University of North Alabama *
