This major collection of essays offers the first serious challenge
to the traditional view that ancient and modern ethics are
fundamentally opposed. In doing so, it has important implications
for contemporary ethical thought, as well as providing a
significant re-assessment of the work of Aristotle, Kant and the
Stoics. The contributors include internationally recognised
interpreters of ancient and modern ethics. Four pairs of essays
compare and contrast Aristotle and Kant on deliberation and moral
development (John McDowell and Barbara Herman), eudaimonism (T. H.
Irwin and Stephen Engstrom), self-love and self-worth (Jennifer
Whiting and Allen Wood), and practical reason and moral psychology
(Julia Annas and Christine Korsgaard). The final pair of essays
introduces the Stoics as an example of how the apparently
antithetical views of Aristotle and the Stoics might be reconciled
(John Cooper and J. B. Schneewind).
