Rezension
"...Baggini and Fosl have provided an admirably no-nonsense tour through the crowded landscape of contemporary philosophical ethics." -Metapsychology Online Reviews
"The Ethics Toolkit is a truly innovative introduction to ethics. Students will have the opportunity to gain familiarity with the tools of ethics (concepts, principles, critiques, and definitions) before they are asked to build their own grand theory of ethics. Far better than a dictionary or encyclopedia of ethics, The Ethics Toolkit provides readers with an appreciation of the crucial role ethics plays in our lives." - Rosemarie Tong, UNC Charlotte
"This Toolkit is very appropriate for various pedagogical uses in university philosophy courses in ethics. Used thoughtfully in conjunction with other possible course readings, it will provide accessible, reliable content helpful for clarifying assignments by faculty and for furthering student learning." - Ed Sankowski, University of Oklahoma
"Very good sense, so clearly and neatly expressed, about ideas in and around ethics worth disagreeing about." - Prof. Ted Honderich, University College London
"The Ethics Toolkit is a great resource for teachers, students, and general readers, and makes an extremely valuable accompaniment to primary texts in introductory ethics courses. It is much more engaging than standard philosophical handbooks, which means that one can read it cover-to-cover in addition to using it as a reference for a wide and eclectic range of concepts that are crucial to clear thinking about ethics." - Avery Kolers, University of Louisville
