Reviews

The book is a delight to read. At every turn of the argument it spurs one to think, and gives added pleasure with each new perplexity it raises. Readers who relish thinking for its own sake will be happy to join in the sheer exuberance of it.--Ronald Beiner "Times Higher Education Supplement "
These are civilized excursions, literate and sensitive, and I cherish the book for its effort to move us out of the metalanguage and into the heart of darkness. Once we acknowledge the ordinariness of ordinary vices, the banality of normal badness, we may find ourselves not so distant from the moral monsters of human history, who may simply be us, writ large.--A. C. Danto "Times Literary Supplement "
A distinguished book, full of wit, humanity, and insight... It is also, and more importantly, a moral psychology for liberals.--Michael Walzer
