Derek Parfit(德里克·帕菲特)是当代极为重要的哲学家,牛津大学万灵学员的高级研究员(Senior Research Fellow),纽约大学全球杰出教授(Global Distinguished Professor)。其主要研究兴趣为个人身份、理性与伦理学问题(problems of personal identity, rationality and ethics) ,另著有重要著作《理与人(Reasons and Persons)》。

 

On What Matters主要讨论理由、规范性等在Parfit看来最重要的问题。在Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey攻读政治哲学博士的Bo Peng与研习会的成员分享道,“看过parfit再看政治哲学之类的,发现仿佛经过极地训练,一下提速很多。我上的一门课读他书的其中三章2-4,还有关于future generation 的部分。但其他graduate seminar ,比如我校哲学系和普林斯顿哲学系,会一学期一门课,专门讲他的这本书。普林斯顿和我校哲学系的上课模式都是,学生课前看书(分章节,每次看几章),上课时有的老师会问学生想谈什么主题,然后开始谈自己想谈的主题,然后学生提问,老师回答。”

 

我们也希望研习会的参与者通过这番阅读讨论,提升自己的阅读能力和分析写作意识,并对重要的伦理学和政治哲学命题有更细致深入的把握。

 

 

本书评论

It is finally here… there is no doubt that On What Matters is an epochal work … a remarkable achievement, giving us a truly comprehensive picture of the moral outlook … of one of the greatest moral thinkers of our time… Parfit’s intellectual personality radiates throughout On What Matters, which as a whole presents a gripping and illuminating picture of a single, comprehensive view of the projects of both normative and metaethical inquiry.

——Mark Schroeder, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

 

[On What Matters] stands as a grand and dedicated attempt to elaborate a fundamentally misguided perspective. Its diligence and its honesty command respect. Perhaps these real virtues will set standards for a very different ventures in academic ethics. Naturalist or otherwise-for a return to the tradition of attempts to understand and improve everyday judgment, and to provide resources for people and policymakers everywhere. In the end, that is what matters.

——Philip Kitcher, The New Republic

 

the most eagerly awaited book in philosophy since Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations… Should the book become as influential as the stars guiding its arrival suggest, it could seriously alter the way that ethics is thought about and taught.

——Constantine Sandis, Times Higher Education

 

Parfits arguments are of extraordinary brilliance and clarity, and by any standards On What Matters is an immensely powerful achievement… Parfits intricate and beautifully lucid book is undoubtedly the work of a philosophical genius.

——John Cottingham, The Tablet

 

This book presents a comprehensive theory of the metaphysics, epistemology, and substance of ethical thought. It originality is often striking and its arguments profound. On What Matters is a monument that will shape the field for many years.

——Kieran Setiya, Mind
