Robert C. Solomon is Quincy Lee Centennial Professor at the University of Texas at Austin and the author of numerous books on philosophy and business.
Written with eloquence and passionate intelligence . . . [Robert Solomon's] provocative book offers a tool for looking at our actions, our institutions, and the hideously unjust world we inhabit.
— Publishers Weekly
. . . a richly developed account of emotions in general and a keen eye for the finely textured character of the moral life.
— Ethics: An International Journal of Social, Political, and Legal Philosophy
Of all major philosophers, [Robert] Solomon . . . remains the most realistic in offering emotions their central place in how we approach philosophical questions and make sense of the world. . . . In Passion for Justice . . . he offers an American theory of justice—human, clear, shrewd.
— The Philadelphia Inquirer
Here is a beautifully argued book, which describes in eloquent but fully understandable terms a subject of universal importance . . . This is a thought-provoking treatise that never stops to take the easy way out.
