“Kaspar has succeeded in creating a lucid and engaging guide for those unfamiliar with intuitionism. The book will certainly be accessible to undergraduates - its chapter summaries are especially helpful in this regard - so I think it is likely to make a very useful teaching resource. Kaspar draws on both contemporary literature and on the work of important early intuitionists, thereby charting the course that he thinks intuitionism should take. Whether or not moral intuitionism is more successful than its rivals, Kaspar does an excellent job of showcasing its attractions. ” ―Stephen Ingram, University of Sheffield, Ethical Perspectives
“[T]he book's constructive project is worthy of attention. Kaspar uses the many objections to intuitionism to pare the theory down to its essentials; then, he develops a framework that promises to solve the explanatory and epistemological puzzles that the view faces. His account of moral facts deserves further discussion; his observations about the centrality of moral relations to ethics are quite compelling; and his diagnosis of moral disagreement (in terms of different weightings of known prima facie duties) seems promising.” ―Robert William Fischer, Texas State University, Philosophy in Review, Vol 34, No 1-2 (2014)
