"... one of the very best books in ethics to be written since the end of World War II and a major contribution to the field." -- Ramon M. Lemos

"Skepticism in Ethics is a model of comprehensiveness in the treatment of its topic. Butchvarov brings to bear many important results from his previous studies of universals, of knowledge, and of being. One hopes the book will become standard reading on the topic in the future." -- The Review of Metaphysics

Do we, or at least can we, know what is good and what is right? Rebutting philosophical skepticism in ethics, Butchvarov vigorously defends the view that there are irreducibly ethical objective facts and that we can indeed know them.
