Why Be Moral ?, Beatrix Himmelmann & Robert B. Louden (eds.), Berlin/Boston: Walter de Gruyter 2015

What reasons do we have to be moral, and are these reasons more compelling than the reasons we have to pursue non-moral projects? Ever since the Sophists first raised this question, it has been a focal point of debate. Why Be Moral? is a collection of new essays, written by an international team of leading scholars in the field, on this fundamental philosophical problem.
