Critics’ Reviews

“This volume offers an outstanding collection of essays that represent a wide variety of viewpoints on human diversity and equality. Koggel has carefully arranged the text to include perspectives and voices that are often absent from social and political discourse; it questions the traditional Western democratic liberal ideals of privacy and individual liberty rights. The anthology presents alternative conceptions on issues of race, gender, disability, and sexual orientation, and encourages students to think differently about our responsibilities to other cultures. Moral Issues in Global Perspective is a one-of-a-kind anthology.” — Jennifer Parks, Loyola University

“This is an immensely impressive and inspiring project. Each volume of Moral Issues in Global Perspective combines serious attention to moral and political theory with substantive treatment of actual moral issues as they arise in very different human contexts across the planet. No credible moral philosopher can ignore the fact that globalization and multiculturalism make a difference to how moral problems are framed and therefore to how those problems might be addressed. And our students deserve nothing less than to be exposed to the rich diversity of human thinking about how to live. Individually and collectively, these volumes provide essential guides to the latest conversation between theorists and practitioners around the world about a host of questions vital to everyday life and to the very future of ethical humankind.” — Susan Dwyer, University of Maryland, Baltimore
