A cutting edge look at the state of the death penalty in America, from the point of view of a judge, a district sttorney, two defense lawyers and the two philosophers.
Making Mortal Choices, Hardback (February 1997)
This text examines the usefulness of "casuistry", or "the method of cases" in arriving at moral decisions. It seeks to teach something about how we actually reason concerning life and death situations, and how we ought to reason if we wish both to be consistent and properly respect human life.
