It is the long-awaited follow-up to Derek Parfits 1984 book Reasons and Persons, one of the landmarks of twentieth-century philosophy. Parfit now presents a powerful new treatment of reasons, rationality, and normativity, and a critical examination of three systematic moral theories - Kants ethics, contractualism, and consequentialism - leading to his own ground-breaking synthetic conclusion. Along the way hediscusses a wide range of moral issues, such as the significance of consent, treating people as a means rather than an end, and free will and responsibility.

On What Matters is already the most-discussed work in moral philosophy: its publication is likely to establish it as a modern classic which everyone working onmoral philosophy will have to read, and which many others will turn to for stimulation and illumination.
