Appeared in Choice on 1995-03:
Glaser's book is in two parts, the first of which is theory. Ethics is beneficence, a constant related to love, values, virtues, duties, rights, and principles. Beneficence provides unity for ethics' three realms, which form inner, middle, and outer circles. The good is interpreted differently in each. Euthanasia provides an example. A task of ethics is to determine the primary realm of concern, with the other two realms as secondary. Glaser also discusses the community of concern, personal qualities of its members, their shared vision, cognitive and group process tools for community enablement, and the need to move from individual out to social perspectives. This latter goes beyond one's presenting a case and five statements for each of the three realms, with a mechanism for deciding which realm is primary. One may note similarities between Glaser's three realms and Kohlberg's three levels of moral development, and between Glaser's case studies and Rest's Defining the Issues Test for studying moral development. A useful book. Upper-division undergraduate through faculty. H. O. Thompson; University of Pennsylvania
