    Joyce, Richard, The Myth of Morality, Cambridge, , pp, $ (hbk), ISBN Reviewed by R. Jay Wallace, University of California, Berkeley This book is an impressive and stimulating treatment of central issues in metaethics. In The Myth of Morality, Richard Joyce argues that moral discourse is hopelessly flawed. At the heart of ordinary moral judgments is a notion of moral inescapability, or practical authority, which, upon investigation, cannot be reasonably defended. His innovative book will appeal to all readers interested in moral philosophy.

      In The Myth of the Moral Brain, Harris Wiseman argues that moral functioning is immeasurably complex, mediated by biology but not determined by it. Morality cannot be engineered; there is no such thing as a “moral brain.” This is the first book-length attempt to provide a thoughtful assessment of the ethics of moral enhancement through Author: Harris Wiseman. In her new book “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents,” Isabel Wilkerson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, recalls once seeing a small, barely noticeable welt in the corner of a room in her home and deciding it was nothing. But over the years, the welt “became a wave that widened and bulged,” until the ceiling was bowed.
