`Review from previous edition How shall we fix the content of particularism? If anyone has earned the right to fix it it must be Jonathan Dancy . . . who has certainly, by his writings in the area over more than twenty years, given the term common currency in ethics. His rich and subtle new book . . . is a hugely rewarding and interesting read, at the cutting edge of contemporary debate in the area: truly a book that cannot be ignored. For my own part, I look forward to continuing to enjoy and be instructed by Ethics without Principles for years to come.' Timothy Chappell, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews `The book is high-octane philosophy. The structure is clear, the writing elegant, the argument peppered with outlooks into other areas of philosophy. A formidable experience.' Christopher Fehige, Times Literary Supplement
