"Moral Psychology: Historical and Contemporary Readings is a much-needed collection of essays on issues of moral psychology ... This collection successfully illustrates the need for scientists and philosophers to work together on such projects in effort to reach the truth via a thorough inquiry. In that regard, I would recommend this text very strongly." (Metapsychology Online Reviews, 22 November 2011)
"Finally, this book serves as a good compilation of key texts in its field, covering philosphers from almost all times and traditions." (Times Higher Education Supplement, 26 May 2011)
"The editors have done the field a great service by bringing together the various different traditions that shape contemporary moral psychology. Here one finds Nietzsche right alongside cutting-edge social psychology, Hume juxtaposed with neuroscience. The result is a real treasure, invaluable both for classroom instruction and for people who just want to get a sense for the best that moral psychology has to offer."

"In recent years there has been an explosion of interest in using methods developed in evolutionary biology, cognitive science and neuroscience to address some of the most venerable issues in moral psychology. This volume, which includes both historically important texts and state of the art research, provides a unique and valuable introduction to the past, the present and the future of moral psychology."
