Book Preface

Even though our names appear in order—reverse alphabetical!—on the cover, the authors each contributed equally to the book. Each of us focused a bit more on certain chapters, but all the chapters are the work of multiple hands. Still, each of us blames the others entirely for any infelicities or blunders.

We all thank Deborah Wilkes of Hackett Publishing for her encouragement, advice and patience.

Liz and Ty thank the Eudaimonia Institute at Wake Forest University for a grant to work on this project over the summer of 2018 and to purchase many books.

Dustin received funding for this project from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 786762).

Rebecca thanks David (aka #1) with whom she participated in a reading group on punishment. Though all of his reading was done a priori, his lived example modeled the real value of applied ethics.

Dustin also thanks Alex Rausch. Alex did not contribute to this book in any way, but did beat Dustin in an arm wrestling contest—the stakes being that the loser had to thank the winner in the acknowledgments of a publication.
