Virtue, Rules, and Justice: Kantian Aspirations is a collection of 16 individual essays. The book is organised into four parts, covering a wide range of topics. ‘Basic Themes’ (Part I) presents an overview of Kant’s ethics and its development in contemporary philosophy; ‘Virtue’ (Part II) considers the notion of virtue from a variety of theoretical perspectives; ‘Moral Rules and Principles’ (Part III) interprets and defends the idea of a ‘Kantian legislative perspective’; and ‘Practical Questions’ (Part IV) addresses a number of real-life problems ranging from humanitarian intervention to the responsibilities of bystanders. Thomas E. Hill Jr. brings a remarkable degree of clarity, thoughtfulness, and originality to these essays. They will undoubtedly be of interest to anyone working on Kant and contemporary ethics.
