Review quote

'This is an eminently readable introduction to moral philosophy. A useful introductory text.' Gail Tulloch, Griffith University 'It is good to find an 'introductory text' on ethics which uses the first person and puts its cards directly on the table: ... Nuttall takes a 'problems' approach to ethics, with a strong emphasis on the personal.'

One would also recommend it to students taking moral philosophy as part of another discipline or training - nurses, midwives, doctors or business students.' Robert Campbell, Principal Lecturer in Philosophy, Bolton Institute, and Chief Examiner, 'A' Level Philosophy, A. E. B. (1987-92) 'The book is written with a commendable clarity and lack of technicality ... stimulating and useful.' The Philosophershow more
