This volume presents papers discussing arguments on both sides of the consequentialist debate. The distinguished contributors include John Rawls, Bernard Williams, Thomas Nagel, Derek Parfit, among others.
'This most recent volume is an important addition to the long running 'Oxford Readings in Philosophy' series ... the 'Oxford Readings in Philosophy' series provides a useful introduction to an important philosophical debate. The best recommendation for Scheffler's volume is that it satisfies this requirement.'
