Vasil Gluchman’s recent edited collection Ethics of Social Consequences: Philosophical, Applied and Professional Challenges is the subject of two detailed and positive reviews in Ethics and Bioethics (in Central Europe) and Studia Philosophica Kantiana. The reviews are available here and here respectively, and two excerpts from each one is below:
“This presented book should serve as proof of its capabilities and consistency in terms of theoretical background – value orientation, principle adherence, theory of right, as well as its practical connotations applied to the numerous (and possibly boundless) ethical challenges that people face in postmodern world. […] Ethics of social consequences as a modern and dynamic theory of non-utilitarian consequentialism aims to achieve positive social consequences while following specific values and norms of humanity, human dignity, moral right, justice, responsibility, moral duty and tolerance. It is a contemporary ethical theory and, as presented in the book, a highly viable one.”

“It should be noted that the book devoted to V. Gluchman’s concept entitled “Ethics of Social Consequences: Philosophical, Applied and Professional Challenges” includes reflections on the structure and the function of the Slovak ethicist’s theory.The work constitutes a contribution in a broadly understood development of ethics which is the subject of interest. This development consists in specification of a number of anthropological and methodological issues in order to increase the applicability of the ethics and its universal nature in the changing reality and requirements it entails.”
