Common Minds: Themes from the Philosophy of Philip Pettit

Oxford University Press (2007)
During a career spanning over thirty years Philip Pettit has made seminal contributions in moral philosophy, political philosophy, philosophy of the social sciences, philosophy of mind and action, and metaphysics. The corpus of work Pettit has contributed and stimulated is all the more remarkable because of the way in which Pettit and his circle adapt lessons learned when thinking about problems in one area of philosophy to problems in a completely different area. Common Minds presents specially written papers by some of the most eminent philosophers alive today, grappling with some of the themes derived from the larger programme that Pettit has inspired. It concludes with a substantial piece by Pettit himself, in which he gives an overview of his work, draws out the connections between its key themes, and provides a rich commentary on the preceding essays.
