About the Author

James D. Wallace is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of Ethical Norms, Particular Cases; Moral Relevance and Moral Conflict; and Virtues and Vices, all from Cornell.


"I have always been an admirer of James D. Wallace's work. His clear accessible prose style is a pleasure to read. And he has long argued forcefully and well that moral philosophers still have much to learn from the pragmatist tradition, in particular from the moral philosophy of John Dewey. In Norms and Practices he shows where and how leading ideas of Deweyan pragmatism interrelate with contemporary debates about the structure and function of ordinary practical reasoning, the role of rules and generalization in moral evaluation, and their relation to virtues and vices of moral character and conduct."-Jennifer Welchman, University of Alberta "James D. Wallace's view is well outside the mainstream. There are at least two other things that strongly recommend it: (a) his presentation and defense of it are clear, concise and convincing and (b) it explains how, rather than being imposed from above or outside, ethics is in fact woven in the fabric of our lives."-Daniel E. Wueste, Director, Robert J. Rutland Institute for Ethics, and President, Society for Ethics Across the Curriculum, Clemson University
