The Nature of Intrinsic Value is a magnificent reconsideration of the great themes that were brought to prominence by G. E. Moore's Principia Ethica. These are the themes that fueled western moral philosophy throughout the twentieth century. Although this is by no means a mere resuscitation of Moorean doctrines, Zimmerman's work is a brilliant reminder of all that was best about Moore's work. Like Moore, Zimmerman displays enormous intellectual integrity, painstaking attention to detail, moral and metaphysical insight, and an open-minded and uncompromising commitment to getting it right. This book should help to restore the concept of intrinsic value to its central position in moral philosophy. It clearly establishes Zimmerman as the premier authority in the field. -- Fred Feldman, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
