Reviews and Awards
"From the reviews of the first edition:"
"an intelligent, substantive, and challenging book ... Scheffler's ... discussion of the problems of consequentialism is superior to any I have read" - Philosophical Review
"`The Rejection of Consequentialism is a carefully argued, provocative book; it is a significant contribution to the perennial debate of the fundamental moral questions; its scary insight, by implication, into the state of contemporary culture should be taken as an urgent challenge to philosophy.'" - International Philosophical Quarterly
"`an essay in moral theory at the deepest level ... which should be taken seriously by all moral philosophers'" - Dialogue
