    Clarendon Press 2003; US$ 44.99

    People do things for reasons. But philosophers have disagreed sharply about how 'reasons explanations' of actions actually work and hence about their implications for human freedom and autonomy.

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 175.00

    Rush Rhees questions the viability of moral theories and the general claims they make in ethics.
