The Routledge Companion to Ethics is a great resource for students interested in ethics and will also make a first-rate reference volume for philosophers working in ethics. It covers an impressive range of topics, going well beyond entries on standard normative ethical theories and metaethical approaches to normativity. The history of ethics is particularly well represented and this volume is sure to set a very high standard for future collections.’ – Julia Driver, Washington University in St. Louis, USA

‘Written by leaders in the field, and with depth as well as breadth, this is the ideal companion for anyone with an interest in philosophical ethics’ – Roger Crisp, St. Anne’s College, Oxford, UK

'This marvellous book covers theoretical and practical aspects of ethics with admirable intelligence and freshness. As useful as it is enjoyable, it is sure to become an indispensible companion.' - Samantha Vice, Rhodes University, South Africa

'This volume amply satisfies its remarkably ambitious objectives. Its coverage of the field of ethics is as broad as feasible, while its in-depth discussions of various topics within that field are characteristically incisive, informative, and at the cutting edge of contemporary thinking.' - Richard Joyce, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

'This excellent volume is impressive both for the breadth of its coverage and the overall very high quality of the contributions. Non-specialists will find that most pieces provide an excellent map, along with in-depth discussion of the major positions taken on the subject; specialists will find plenty of interest, as well. An excellent read.' - Marcia Baron, Indiana University, Bloomington, USA
