"An impressive collection of twelve essays which reflect Parfita s own knack of getting to the heart of the most fundamental problems in ethics and personal identity. With contributors of the calibre of Sydney Shoemaker, Simon Blackburn, Judith Jarvis Thomson, John McDowell and Frank Jackson you would have every right to expect some first--rate writing, and you wona t be disappointed ... This is a volume for the reader who has been fascinated by the richness and complexity of Parfit and is looking for insightful, well--considered responses to it." The Philosophersa Magazine
