"I predict that when Shafer-Landau's The Ethical Life is paired with his textbook, The Fundamentals of Ethics, they will become a standard for contemporary ethical issues courses. . . . The quality of the original-source texts is excellent." --Jason Zinser, University of North Florida
"This new ethics anthology by one of today's leading moral philosophers is a real standout among the many choices available. It combines carefully chosen, can't-do-without classics with some unknown gems. Add the editor's lucid, accurate introductions, and I can't think of a more ideal choice." --Chris Heathwood, University of Colorado at Boulder
"This is a very strong anthology, usefully and unusually combining classical and contemporary readings in value theory, normative ethics, metaethics, and applied ethics. I can now confidently say that this is a real and significant improvement over the Rachels anthology. It appears to me to promise the best anthology on the market." --Christopher F. Zurn, University of Kentucky
"Shafer-Landau has put together a terrific introductory anthology for all undergraduates studying ethics and moral philosophy. . . . I wouldn't use any other textbook." --Paul Bloomfield, University of Connecticut
