Rezension:

"Hurka's book is a clear formulation of perfectionism. It is historically informed and philosophically sophisticated. All readers will benefit."— Canadian Philosophical Reviews

"Readers accustomed to the high conceptual and argumentative standards characteristic of analytic philosophy at its best will not be disappointed by Hurka's discussions. In every case, whether or not his arguments win conviction in the end, they invariably illuminate and leave the impression that the issues have been explored in a fair and even-handed way. Hurka's conclusions are also often becoming in their tentativeness and modesty: where he can find no definitive resolution of a question he has the candor to say so....Hurka has done a remarkable job of building an elegant and attractive version of perfectionism. Written with admirable rigor and clarity, his book will surely remain the definitive treatment of the theory by an analytic philosopher for a very long while. By presenting perfectionism in the best possible light he has done a great service to the theory's supporters and critics alike."— The Philosophical Review

"This is a brilliant book....I know of no other discussion of human and moral good that is so rewarding....Highly original and deeply insightful."— Philosophical Books

It is most welcome to have a hard-headed and carefully argued defence of perfectionism ... This book contains many tracts of careful, exact, and economic argument in support of its main position ... This book is to be recommended to those interested in political and moral philosophy ... stimulating, interesting and very much to be welcomed. ( Utilitas)
