Henry Sidgwick, Eye of the Universe: An Intellectual Biography (New York: Cambridge University Press, 2004).  This is the only work that surveys the whole of Sidgwick's philosophy, bringing out both its underlying unity and its unresolved tensions.  This book considers both the historical context of Sidgwick's work and its philosophical and cultural significance, with special reference to the ways in which his life and work interacted with those of John Addington Symonds, a pioneer of gay studies, and to the problematic racist and imperialist dimensions of utilitarianism.  Featured on “About Books,” WVIK, Augustana Public Radio, Oct. 15, 2004, in a special symposium in Utilitas, Vol. 19, No. 1 (March 2007), with contributions by Terence Irwin, Anthony Skelton, and John Deigh, and in a special symposium in Ethics and Politics, guest edited by Gianfranco Pelligrino (Trieste: University of Trieste, forthcoming).  Winner of the American Philosophical Society’s Jacques Barzun Prize in Cultural History for 2004.  Major reviews by Robert Shaver in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews (February 12, 2005); Peter Allan Dale, Victorian Studies, Vol. 47, No. 1 (2004); Anthony Skelton, Philosophy in Review (June 2005); John Pemble, The Journal of the History of Sexuality,Vol. 14, Nos. 1-2 (January-April 2005); Mary Warnock, Times Higher Education Supplement (April 8, 2005); John Skorupski, Times Literary Supplement (April 29, 2005); Martha Nussbaum, The Nation (June 6, 2005); Alan Ryan, The London Review of Books (June 2, 2005); Alan Gauld, The Journal of the Society for Psychical Research, Vol. 69.2, No. 879 (2005); Frank M.
