Obligation, Supererogation and Self-Sacrifice

Philosophy 62 (239):96 - 101 (1987)
Abstract
Can an action cease to be required of a moral agent solely because it comes too costly ? Can self-sacrifice or risk of self-sacrifice serve as a limit on our moral obligations? Two recent articles in Philosophy , concerned primarily with the possibility of supererogatory action, suggest very different answers to these questions
