About the Author

Christine M. Korsgaard earned her B.A. at the University of Illinois in 1974, her Ph.D. at Harvard University, where she studied with John Rawls, in 1981, and an LHD at the University of Illinois in 2004. She is currently Arthur Kingsley Porter Professor of Philosophy at Harvard University. She works on moral philosophy and its history, practical reason, agency, personal identity, and the relations between human beings and the other animals.


This is a refreshing piece of scholarship. * Jason Wakefield, Avello Publishing Journal *
This volume collects ten influential papers by Christine M. Korsgaard, one of today's leading moral philosophers... They are organized into three parts, and preceded by a very rich Introduction, which provides the framework and the basic ideas developed in the essays... As with any other work of such philosophical importance, the essays in this collection have initiated debates that will be the foci of ethics and action theory in the days to come. * Carla Bagnoli, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
