Editorial Reviews

Review

Its thirteen chapters, penned by a stellar collection of twenty philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists, offer an outstanding view of the current state of this now-hopping field. Unlike many handbooks, however, this one significantly adds to, and does not simply review, the literature. It is essential reading for anyone interested in moral psychology, and it should probably be read by anyone doing ethics, period. Dan Haybron, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the scholar, this book is a good collection of essays on contemporary topics in moral psychology. (Just check the Table of Contents to see if your desired topic is in here.) Moreover, it's written by authorities in their respective areas. The articles are comprehensive surveys, and what they do not explicitly address themselves, they give ample resources to pursue. This makes the book good for exploring unfamiliar topics in moral psychology, or for use in a class on the topic.

For the serious student, this book can serve as a dense introduction or as a prelude to serious research. The surveys in each article will give you a tour through contemporary debates surrounding an aspect of moral psychology. Also, the notes and sources will be invaluable, as they will guide your research, should you choose to hone in on a specific topic.

The greatest downside to this book is that the articles are written at a high level. Then again, if you're a professional academic, or if you just like the topic, this is also one of its greatest strengths. I would recommend this book to anyone with a serious interest in moral psychology.

A little cerebral unless you are into moral psychology as an scholarly endeavor. But the writers are clear in their views expressed usually in counterpoint to an objecting view (good philosophical method) so if your willing to concentrate you will get a lot out of it.
