About this book

A rare academic study on what John Rawls, Peter Singer and Derek Parfit acknowledge as the finest book in ethics – The Methods of Ethics . With a rather shocking conclusion that 'none of us can match Sidgwick', Mariko Nakano-Okuno lucidly analyzes Henry Sidgwick's impacts on contemporary ethics.
