"...each paper is excellent, equally insightful about 'moral inquiry' in general and in the particular discipline discussed." The Virginia Quarterly Review
Recently there has been a renewed interest in moral inquiry among American scholars in a variety of disciplines. This collection of accessible essays affords a view of the current state of moral inquiry in the American academy, and it offers fresh departures for ethically informed, interdisciplinary scholarship. Seeking neither to reduce values to facts nor facts to values, these essays aim to foster discussion about inquiry and moral judgment, and demonstrate that moral inquiry need not be either dispassionate and value-freee or moralistic and preachy.
