History of Ethics
by Henry Sidgwick

An excellent summary of ethics for those who have read some of the major works. I think it would be hard to follow for anyone who has not read some of the philosophers whose thoughts he condenses. Even in areas that I have read extensively (the Scottish Enlightenment), I learned some significant things. He seems to be a trustworthy guide and a fine writer and scholar.

Year Read: 1982
