Editorial Reviews

Review


"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
Feinberg has really exposed me to so many issues about the the criminal law. As a matter of fact, this book is a revelation that everybody must grab i order to live successfully under the law and our neighbors. I really love this. It is true Feinberg presents a detailed analysis of the concept and definition of harm and applies it to a host of practical and theoretical issues, showing how the harm principle must be interpreted if it is to be a plausible guide to the lawmaker.

I will recommend it for everybody. I must promote this book. It deserves to be promote.

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.
