Human Agency: Language, Duty, and Value: Philosophical Essays in Honor of J.O. Urmson

Stanford University Press (1988)
Abstract
The essays in this volume explore current work in central areas of philosophy, work unified by attention to salient questions of human action and human agency. They ask what it is for humans to act knowledgeably, to use language, to be friends, to act heroically, to be mortally fortunate, and to produce as well as to appreciate art. The volume is dedicated to J. O. Urmson, in recognition of his inspirational contributions to these areas. All the essays but one have been specially written for this volume.
