Summary
This selection of Lovibond's shorter writings from 1989-2014 has a broad thematic unity based on its affiliation to the realist or rationalist traditions in moral philosophy. Some of the essays seek to clarify the relation of feminism to these traditions and to current anti-rationalist tendencies: especially important here are the status and prospects of normativity, autonomy, purposive action, and other conceptual resources for critical thinking called into question over the last third of the 20th century - not least by feminist writers heedful of 'Continental' European developments
