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 *
