In more than one sense, it is a work of great integrity. Beautifully and economically written, and powerfully argued, it will become a classic or modern moral philosophy. Roger Crisp I read the book with mounting pleasure in all sorts of things, not least the patient response to Nietzsche, some marvellously instructive and/or amusing examples, and the whole adventure of it all. David Wiggins Philippa Foot's Natural Goodness is by a long way the best modern book I have read on moral philosophy. Lucid, original and balanced, it should be a starting-point for all future discussion of the subject. Michael Dummett ... a short and beautifully pellucid philosophical study John Bayley, TLS Natural Goodness is an exciting and provoking book, more interesting than most books in moral philosophy ... What she has given us both in this book and elsewhere deserves nothing but intellectual and moral gratitude.' Alasdair MacIntyre, Philosophical Quarterly
