An excellent introduction to moral philosophy covering meta-ethics, normative ethics, and moral epistemology. Most introductory books on the matter follow a rather similar pattern of explaining a very incoherent form of moral relativism and then moving on to normative theories. Benn understands the implications of this approach and overcomes it by presenting a number of central issues (free will and determinism, the conservative's challenge, the post-modernist challenge, objectivity in ethics) that other authors neglect. The only flaw that I could find is Benn's treatment of utilitarianism which seems overly biased in comparison to deontological and virtue ethics. Other than that, I highly recommend this book.
