"...[McMahan's] work is representative of the mainstream of contemporary practical ethics in the Anglo-American philosophical world. Take the fact that the moral intolerability of his theory is revealed by invoking an imaginary case. THE ETHICS OF KILLING is full to bursting with such thought-experiments or 'cases' as McMahan calls them. Their deployment is a central technique in the modern moral philosopher's tool-kit....THE ETHICS OF KILLING puts this technique to more systematic and imaginative use than any other book I know of."McMahan, Jeff is the author of 'Ethics of Killing Problems at the Margins of Life', published 2003 under ISBN 9780195169829 and ISBN 0195169824.
