Review quote

"The topic of this book is significant for contemporary social and political philosophy. The book could be a main text for advanced undergraduate courses and graduate seminars on contemporary social philosophy. It could also be used as a supplementary text for courses and seminars on Kant's practical philosophy." -- Jeffrey Edwards, State University of New York at Stony Brook
