Editorial Reviews


[Baier's book is] likely to be widely read by moral philosophers in the next hundred years. Anscombe, MacIntyre, Schneewind, Williams, and other contemporary philosophers have expressed well-founded suspicions about the value of moral philosophy as it has been practiced in the English-speaking world since the days of Sidgwick. But Baier goes a step beyond these suspicions. It is her feminism, and the attention which feminism brings with it to specific, concrete injustices, that have enabled her to do so. She offers not just suspicion, but an original, constructive, promising new account of the place of moral philosophy in culture. (Richard Rorty London Review of Books)

Baier's book is a brilliant contribution to contemporary moral philosophy: clear, undogmatic, yet still rigorous… She writes both as a philosopher and as a woman but she hastens to add that female moral philosophers will have the same goal as men: to formulate a theory acceptable to everybody, i.e. to both women and men. (Carl Rudbeck Expressen (Stockholm))

The collection represents much of the best that good philosophy can offer: deeply felt engagement, an unusual and personal style, and constructive and imaginative suggestions, along with the recognition that much remains to be done and that it can be best done cooperatively. With writers like Annette Baier around, there is no danger of moral or philosophical stagnation. (Jonathan Dancy Philosophical Books)
