These thirteen new, specially written essays by a distinguished international line-up of contributors, including some leading contemporary moral philosophers, give a rich and varied view of current work on ethics and practical reason. The three main perspectives on the topic, Kantian, Humean, and Aristotelian, are all well represented. Issues covered include: the connection between reason and motivation; the source of moral reasons and their relation to reasons of self-interest; the relation of practical reason to value, to freedom, to responsibility, and to feelings. The editors' introduction provides a valuable introductory survey of the topic, putting the individual essays in context. Ethics and Practical Reason will be essential reading for scholars, postgraduates, and upper-level undergraduates working in this area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
All of these essays are good ... The whole volume is well worth reading and rereading by anyone interested in practical reason and its relation to morality. * David Schmidtz, Ethics *
This collection of essays concerning these and other topics at the heart of the current debate in ethics is most welcome. The contributions not only engage with the issues; they also - rarely in collections of this nature - engage with each other. * Peter Goldie, King's College London, Mind, Vol108, no 431, July 1999 *
