About the Author

William Desmond is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the International Program of Philosophy in the Higher Institute of Philosophy, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Louvain), Belgium. He is the author of many books, including Being and Between, which won both the Prix Cardinal Mercier Award in 1995, as well as the J. N. Findlay Award of the Metaphysical Society of America for the best book in metaphysics.


"This is a truly important work by one of the most interesting thinkers writing today. It is a profound phenomenological-metaphysical reflection on the basis of ethics, and the ways in which we can be faithful or unfaithful to this basis. At the same time there is nothing programmatic in it: We are offered a comprehensive treatment of the milieu of ethics, how we can go generally right or wrong in our after-the-fact constructions, but also the various specific regions of ethics, like family relations. If the ambition is extraordinary, so also is the accomplishment. Its reach is greater than any book on ethics that I know." - Cyril O'Regan, author of The Heterodox Hegel "I like its originality, synthetic quality, and insight. ...a first-rate work by a first-rate mind." - James L. Marsh, author of Critique, Action, and Liberation
