This book is a study of ancient views about 'moral luck'.

Charles Taylor

This is an immensely rich and stimulating book. This is partly because the author combines to a rare degree qualities not often found together.' a scholar's understanding of the text with rigour of argument, and these together with an imaginative grasp of moral questions. But it is also because she has chosen to write a very ambitious book, to grapple with some fundamental, perennial issues ....It should change the tenour of debate in more than one field. —Canadian Journal of Philosophy
