Climbing the Mountain

Here is Derek Parfit’s new book manuscript, on-line.  Thanks to Robin Hanson for the pointer.

Addendum: Parfit’s 1984 Reasons and Persons remains my favorite contemporary work in moral philosophy.  He is also the most important thinker on social choice paradoxes since Kenneth Arrow.  Since that time Parfit has been working on multiple volumes on the major problems of philosophy.  Many people who have seen advance drafts of Climbing the Mountain claim to be disappointed.  I will read it soon.
