CHOICE Review

In this follow-up to Philosophy at 3:AM (2014), Marshall compiles 26 edited interviews originally published in the online 3:AM Magazine. The stated goal of the collection is to provide an accessible survey of the landscape of contemporary philosophy of ethics, a survey useful to nonspecialists unfamiliar with academic jargon. Though many top recent and contemporary philosophers, especially in the Anglo-American style, are included, Marshall was only partly successful in making the results accessible. Too many of those interviewed engage in the kinds of insider conversations familiar to readers of professional philosophy journals, sometimes encouraged by the interviewer's questions referencing technical points or recent publications of other philosophers. In some cases, a point requires more background in philosophy than can be assumed of nonspecialist readers. There are exceptions: Joseph Raz consistently refuses to drop names and theories in favor of tackling meaty, important questions, and several others follow in the same style. For the rest, the collection is a good road map for advanced students and professional philosophers keeping current with contemporary debates in metaethics, normative ethical theory, and a small handful of applied questions. Summing Up: Recommended. With reservations. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. --Jeffrey H. Barker, Converse College
