His most important books include The Inexact and Separate Science of Economics (1992), Economic Analysis and Moral Philosophy (co-authored with Michael McPherson, 1996), Causal Asymmetries (1998) and Economic Analysis, Moral Philosophy, and Public Policy (an enlarged second edition of the 1996 book co-authored with Michael McPherson, 2006). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
