What kind of turn is the turn to ethics? A Right turn? A Left turn? A wrong turn? A U-turn? Ethics is back in literary studies, philosophy, and political theory. The philosophers, political theorists, literary critics and physician whose essays are collected here bring the particularities of their disciplines and training to a vital complex of questions.


"The contributors to this fine collection are from a wide range of backgrounds, including literary studies, cultural studies, philosophy, and pediactrics… a careful reading of each essay is a richly rewarding experience." -- Nicholas Pagan
