Description

"Malik is admirably evenhanded in considering the history of ethical thought. An excellent survey for intermediate students of philosophy and a fine course in self-education for general readers."
--Kirkus Reviews

"What I love about Kenan Malik's book is its unashamed, unabashed ambition: he wants to write the history of moral thought, not just in the Western tradition, but of all the traditions that make up the global argument about the direction that the human moral compass should point. The result is a tour de force of lucidity and narrative skill."
--Michael Ignatieff

"An absolute tour de force. I can imagine it replacing Bertrand Russell's History of Western Philosophy on many a bookshelf--certainly mine."
--Tom Holland, author of In the Shadow of the Sword: The Birth of Islam and the Rise of the Global Arab Empire

"This is an extraordinarily rewarding investigation of the most striking, and contested, aspect of our humanity . . . To read it is not only to be better informed but also to be more alert to the assumptions that have guided human beings in the past, and to our capacity for goodness and wickedness."
--Raymond Tallis, author of The Kingdom of Infinite Space
