Reason and Right
by W. D. Hudson

Another analysis of Richard Price's moral philosophy. This book is more clear and incisive than Reason and Virtue by Antonio S. Cua. It is useful as an introduction to British moral philosophy and to Price in particular. It has some of the faults as Cua's book: too much epistemology and too much proving what Price must not have meant. Hudson shows thorough understanding of all the issues, although I don't always agree with his opinions in so far as he reveals them. He is so meticulous in his criticism that hardly a sentence ever written could withstand such scrutiny.

Year Read: 1982
