“Derek Parfit’s On What Matters is, in many respects, a monumental piece of work.”  (Ethical Perspectives, 1 June 2013)


From the Back Cover

World-renowned British philosopher Derek Parfit's soon-to-be-published On What Matters is certain to change the face of some of the most fundamental concerns of moral philosophy - including the nature of practical reasons and rationality, and the interpretation of Kantian Ethics and its relation to consequentialism. It will also initiate new debates about the freedom of the will, the nature of moral attitudes and properties, the relationship between prudentiality and ethics, and the significance of desiring.

In Essays on Derek Parfit’s On What Matters, seven leading moral philosophers offer critical evaluations of the central ideas presented in this greatly anticipated new work. Authored by a team including Princeton's Michael Smith, one of the world's leading meta-ethicists, the papers address a variety of topics relating to Parfit's work, including his central thesis that the main ethical theories can agree on what matters, and his defense of moral realism.
