  • Author: Skorupski, John
  • Description: The Development of Ethics: A Historical and Critical Study, by Terence Irwin. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Terry Irwin's vastly ambitious three-volume history of Western ethics is a unique achievement. It is likely to remain so for many years, perhaps for ever. Irwin traces the history of ethics from Socrates to Rawls; he does so with remarkable erudition, high analytic skills, and an underlying passion. The result is magnificent, in both its grand ambition and the appropriate scale of its execution. Nothing competes with it. And yet, if one judges by the standard of its own great aims, it is by no means clear that it succeeds. Reprinted by permission of Blackwell Publishers
