Three of these are about moral education, three others discuss the relation between morality on the one hand, and law, economics and psychiatry on the other; two more are concerned with relativism and the role of the personal in morality. Those with an academic interest in the subject of morality, as well as lawyers, psychologists, educationalists and other general readers should find the contents of this book interesting and thought-provoking.
