Reviews & endorsements
"This is a very provocative book, which in English ought to make a unique contribution to the discussion of the 'Why be moral?' question, and also to join issue with recent discussions about the relation of morality to autonomy and the human good, in the writings of such English speaking philosophers as MacIntyre, Williams and Foot." Allen Wood, Cornell UniversitySee more reviews
"This is an eminently well-argued book. The translation by Theodore Talbot is almost invariably fluent." Review of Metaphysics
