Default Peter Singer on objectivism

Peter Singer on Derek Parfit's On What Matters:

Quote:
Last month, however, saw a major philosophical event: the publication of Derek Parfitís long-awaited book On What Matters. Until now, Parfit, who is Emeritus Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, had written only one book, Reasons and Persons, which appeared in 1984, to great acclaim. Parfitís entirely secular arguments, and the comprehensive way in which he tackles alternative positions, have, for the first time in decades, put those who reject objectivism in ethics on the defensive.

In this era of ideological solipsism, we need Hume more than ever.
