Review quote

Its thirteen chapters, penned by a stellar collection of twenty philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists, offer an outstanding view of the current state of this now-hopping field. Unlike many handbooks, however, this one significantly adds to, and does not simply review, the literature. It is essential reading for anyone interested in moral psychology, and it should probably be read by anyone doing ethics, period. * Dan Haybron, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
