Flanagan’s book prepares a framework for the balanced interchange between empirical studies and their varied interpretations. Rigorous in its search, the value of this book lies in its capacity to ferret out the conditional bonds between human psychology and ethical expectations.—E. Mark Stern, Contemporary Psychology

This is a rich and elegantly written book… In Flanagan’s writing, no view is dismissed out of hand, none is taken over uncritically thereby exemplifying the same intellectual responsibility he advocates for moral psychology in general.—Thomas E. Wren, Journal of Moral Education

This book is both stimulating and well-written. It covers a great deal of territory, but is always clear and usually fair. It can be read with profit by psychologists, ethicists, and political philosophers.—Roger Paden, Review of Metaphysics
