Reasons and Persons, Paperback Book

Description

This book challenges, with several powerful arguments, some of our deepest beliefs about rationality, morality, and personal identity. The author claims that we have a false view of our own nature; that it is often rational to act against our own best interests; that most of us have moral views that are directly self-defeating; and that, when we consider future generations the conclusions will often be disturbing.

He concludes that moral non-religious moral philosophy is a young subject, with a promising but unpredictable future.
