"[A] welcome contribution to contemporary moral philosophy...
[this] book points to a very interesting, and in this reviewer's
opinion important, avenue for further investigation of metaethical
constructivism in post-Kantian idealism... [Wakefield] makes it
clear that one can read Gentile in line with contemporary
constructivists, and that [Gentile's] engagement with Kantian and
Hegelian idealism gives the historical background for alternatives
to the preponderance of constructivism grounded almost exclusively
on Kantian considerations." -- Sebastian Orlander * Kantian Review
"This is certainly a work of a high calibre... [It] constitutes an important testament to the attention that Gentile has received, and continues to receive, outside Italy... For this and other reasons [the book] merits close attention, and we hope that it will be widely read and will encourage others to reflect on the legacy that [Gentile] has left us." -- Antonio Lombardi * Cum-scientia.
