In Reasons and the Good Roger Crisp answers some of the oldest questions in moral philosophy. Claiming that a fundamental issue in normative ethics is what ultimate reasons for action we might have, he argues that the best statements of such reasons will not employ moral concepts. He investigates and explains the nature of reasons themselves; his account of how we come to know them combines an intuitionist epistemology with elements of Pyrrhonist scepticism. He defends a hedonistic theory of well-being and an account of practical reason according to which we can give some, though not overriding, priority to our own good over that of others. The book develops original lines of argument within a framework of some traditional but currently less popular views.

About the Author:


Roger Crisp is a Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy at St Anne's College, University of Oxford. His research focuses on Ethics, Political Philosophy, and Ancient Philosophy.

Review:


"Roger Crisp belongs in the company of Derek Parfit and Peter Singer as one of the most distinguished contemporary philosophical defenders of the legacy of Henry Sidgwick.... This is an excellent work -- clear, concise, and compelling. And it packs a powerful philosophical punch."--Bart Schultz, Ethics


"Because the book covers such a range of issues in such a short and well-integrated way, reading it will be illuminating for many.... I can see ample reason for a moral philosopher to read this book: for its stimulation and sweep, and to wake one from one's dogmatic slumbers. Nod off for a second here, and you will miss crucial arguments entirely."--Henry S. Richardson, Mind


"Crisp advances substantial theses about reasons, welfare, pleasure, moral knowledge, intuition, moral disagreement, personal identity, impartiality, population axiology, and more.... this bold and sweeping work contains quite a number of provocative discussions of interest to theoretical ethicists of many stripes."--Chris Heathwood, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"The book is sparklingly clear and contains abundant insights and interesting arguments...a rich and rewarding book which will contribute greatly to a number of debates throughout moral philosophy."--Guy Fletcher, Ratio
