"An impressive collection of twelve essays which reflect Parfit's own knack of getting to the heart of the most fundamental problems in ethics and personal identity. With contributors of the calibre of Sydney Shoemaker, Simon Blackburn, Judith Jarvis Thomson, John McDowell and Frank Jackson you would have every right to expect some first-rate writing, and you won't be disappointed ... This is a volume for the reader who has been fascinated by the richness and complexity of Parfit and is looking for insightful, well-considered responses to it." "The Philosophers' Magazine "From the Publisher:
When it was first published in 1984, Derek Parfit's "Reasons and Persons" was heralded as one of the most significant achievements in moral philosophy to have appeared in recent times. Now, "Reading Parfit" brings together some of the most distinguished scholars in the field to discuss and critique each of the four parts of this outstanding work, and present a detailed response to Parfit's philosophical perspective. Including thirteen essays, of which the majority has been written especially for this volume, "Reading Parfit" will be an invaluable collection for both students and scholars working in the fields of metaphysics and moral philosophy. Contributors include David Gauthier, Frank Jackson, Larry Timken, Judith Jarvis Thomson, John McDowell, Robert Merrihew Adams, Michael Stocker, Philip Pettit, Michael Smith, Simon Blackburn, Jonathan Dancy, Mark Johnston, David O. Brink and Sidney Shoemaker. Parfit's responses to these papers will be published later in two separate volumes entitled "Practical Realism" and "The Metaphysics of the Self"
