" invaluable, possibly ground-breaking, collection of hitherto unpublished essays by authors (philosophers, lawyers, and psychologists), many of whom are well known for their work in the area. The essays are all highly orginal or suggestive, and the introduction contains a brief summary of each." Ethics, July 1989 "...Schoeman has put together a collection of essays, which contains an index of names, that will repay careful study because important new issues are raised and important old issues are raised in a new light. This collection is very highly recommended. It should occasion much fruitful philosophical discussion." Laurence Thomas, Ethics, July 1989
