Description

Philippa Foot is one of the most original and widely respected philosophers of recent years; her work has exerted a lasting influence on the development of moral philosophy. In tribute to her, twelve eminent philosophers from both sides of the Atlantic offer essays exploring the various topics in moral philosophy to which she has made a distinctive contribution. There are chapters on virtue ethics, naturalism, non-cognitivism, relativism, categorical requirements, and the role of rationality in morality. Virtues and Reasons offers at the same time an impressive demonstration of Professor Foot's continuing influence, and a selection of outstanding work in contemporary moral philosophy. 'to be welcomed for more reasons than one. Most obviously, it is fitting that Foot's salutary influence on moral theory should be celebrated by such a fine set of papers ...[they] have much to offer' Michael Smith, Times Literary Supplement
