Peter H. Spader is Professor of Philosophy at Marywood University.
"My overall impression after reading Spader's manuscript, is a solid plece of Scheler scholarship, which breaks new ground in a number of promising directions, and will surely be viewed as a major contribution to the developing field of Scheler studies. His work aims at being comprehensive and sympathetic, yet without being uncritical." - Philip Blosser, Department of Philosophy, Lenoir-Rhyne College "This book casts novel light on the contentious balance between rationalist ethics (Kant) and the personalist ethics of values (Max Scheler). On the basis of the foundation of ethical personalism and of values provided by Scheler - monumental, yet unfinished -, Spader gleans elements toward its completion as a promise to a future morality. For anyone interested in the role of ethics in an age of high-spirited technology. Spader's assessments provide significant guidelines." - Manfred Frings, Editor of The Collected Works of Max Scheler
