Fact and Value : Essays on Ethics and Metaphysics for Judith Jarvis Thomson, Paperback Book

Fact and Value : Essays on Ethics and Metaphysics for Judith Jarvis Thomson Paperback

Edited by Alex (Professor of Philosophy, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Byrne, Robert C. (Mit) Stalnaker, Ralph (University of Southern California) Wedgwood

Part of the Fact and Value series



The diversity of topics discussed in this book reflects the breadth of Judith Jarvis Thomson's philosophical work.

Throughout her long career at MIT, Thomson's straightforward approach and emphasis on problem-solving have shaped philosophy in significant ways.

Some of the book's contributions discuss specific moral and political issues such as abortion, self-defense, the rights and obligations of prospective fathers, and political campaign finance.

Other contributions concern the foundations of moral theory, focusing on hedonism, virtue ethics, the nature of nonconsequentialism, and the objectivity of moral claims.

Finally, contributions in metaphysics and epistemology discuss the existence of sets, the structures reflected in conditional statements, and the commitments of testimony.
