Virtues and Reasons: Philippa Foot and Moral Theory by Rosalind Hursthouse

Philippa Foot is one of the most original and widely respected philosophers of our time; her work has exerted a lasting influence on the development of moral philosophy. In tribute to her, twelve leading philosophers from both sides of the Atlantic have contributed essays exploring the various topics in moral philosophy to which she has made a distinctive contribution—virtue ethics, naturalism, non-cognitivism, relativism, categorical requirements, and the role of rationality in morality.
