"a tightly integrated and exceptionally well-written survey of the central questions of ethics. ... I recommend Deigh's book to those wanting a sophisticated introduction for undergraduates, to non-specialists prepared to engage with a serious text, and to every graduate student in philosophy." -Nancy E. Schauber, University of Richmond, Notre Dame Philosophical Review
"...An Introduction to Ethics is rich with interesting insights, and the prose succeeds in constructing a coherent narrative. One of the book's most novel features is its complex methodology." --George Lazaroiu, PhD, Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, New York, Contemporary Readings in Law and Social Justice
