Editorial Reviews


"Joel Feinberg is a political and social philosopher of major importance....Virtually everyone who has written about legal and moral responsibility during the past fifteen years owes him a significant debt." --Harvard Law Review

"Illuminates and advances the discussion of all the issues it touches. It is certainly a major contribution that will require consideration for years to come." --Law and Philosophy

"Feinberg's treatment of these issues is probably as thorough, clear, and sophisticated as any that exist. The book is superbly and engagingly written and filled with good sense. It is illuminating not only of problems of philosophical analysis and normative theory, but also of more concrete policy issues....An extremely useful book. The four volumes together will doubtless comprise the most impressive treatment of their topic ever achieved." --Philosophy and Phenomenological Research

"An extremely useful book. Many important topics are discussed carefully, sensibly, and with erudition. The four volumes together will doubtless comprise the most impressive treatment of the topic ever achieved."--Philosophy and Phenomenological Research

Format: Paperback
This is a really great book, a marvelous analysis fot people who want to harm others without harming themselves. Especially insightful is the chapter about harming the dead.
