"Moral Agents and Their Desertsis a significant addition to the study of Mu'tazilite thought and Muslim ethics. The book details other works on the subject and speaks with distinct authority about the material. It articulates the broad issues of this subject with rigor, personal engagement, and a distinct concern for relevance. The book will form a welcome bridge between this highly specialized subject and nonspecialists, and certainly others working in fields such as Islamic thought or medieval philosophy."--Toby Mayer, the Institute of Ismaili Studies, LondonVasalou, Sophia is the author of 'Moral Agents and Their Deserts: The Character of Mu'tazilite Ethics', published 2008 under ISBN 9780691131450 and ISBN 0691131457.
