  1. Morality and Action by Warren Quinn. [REVIEW]Michael Thompson - 1996 - Philosophical Review 105 (2):270.
    This volume collects the principal works of the late Warren Quinn. The papers cover a broad range of topics and may, for present purposes, be divided three ways, as variously concerning problems of metaethics, of the rationality of morality, and of substantive or practical ethics.
