Michael Boylan received his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and is professor of philosophy at Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including Philosophy: An Innovative Introduction (with Charles Johnson) and Critical Inquiry: The Process of Argument, both published by Westview Press.
"Boylan makes a daring effort to take on the broad scope of global ethics in a manageable and comprehensive way. His introduction of the worldview imperatives in this context is imaginative and offers a way of engaging students while holding them accountable for their views." -Robert Paul Churchill, George Washington University "Morality and Global Justice meets the challenge of combining traditional ethics and moral theory with contemporary global concerns ... an excellent introduction for undergraduates and an engaging review for more advanced scholars." -Naomi Zack, University of Oregon
