“Recommended for all undergraduate libraries in the sciences and humanities.” (Perspectives on Science & Christian Faith, 1 March 2013)"In the end, I think this is a valuable book mixing an analytic philosophical approach with some interesting biology. I personally found the book faltering only because it takes, perhaps unnecessarily, a very orthodox adaptationist stance. Evolutionary ethics should take the whole of evolutionary biology seriously into account, not only a biased version of it." (Metapsychology, 20 February 2012)
"Balanced and comprehensive, it should be the definitive text for many years". (Star News Online Blogs, 22 December 2010)"In recent years evolutionary ethics has burgeoned in fascinating but sometimes confusing ways. James' judicious treatment of the field is well written, well organized, and well balanced. There is no better introductory text covering this ground."
—Richard Joyce, University of Sydney
"This is a terrific introduction to a topic of growing interest. Balanced and comprehensive, it should be the definitive text for many years."
—Michael Ruse, The Florida State University
