Review quote

While much of contemporary moral and political philosophy fails to challenge the very unjust societies in which we live, Claudia Card in her ground-breaking work directs our attention at the general and particular character of the social evils in which we ourselves are frequently implicated. Inspired by her work, the contributors to this volume illuminate, qualify, and extend Card's account in thought-provocative ways. Reading the essays in this volume is a transformative experience not to be missed! -- James Sterba, University of Notre Dame An unusually sustained and illuminating collection of essays, elaborating the important contributions to ethics and political philosophy of Claudia Card and focused on the central contemporary issues of evil, atrocity, and forgiveness. -- Berel Lang, Wesleyan Universityshow more
