In this collection, Kieran Setiya explores the place of agency in ethics, arguing for a causal theory of intentional action on which it is understood through the knowledge embodied in our intentions, and against the rationalist project of deriving norms of practical reason from the nature of the will.

Istvn Zoltn Zrdai, Ethical Theory and Moral Practice I warmheartedly recommend Practical Knowledge to everyone with a serious interest in action theory, reasons and rationality, and ethics. The writings are sophisticated, so they require familiarity with the basics of the literature. They might be most appreciated by advanced students and specialists. As I wrote before, if Setiya's view is correct that has weighty implications for ethics and views of agency - of what is, for us humans, good to do and why - so the work required by the essays certainly pays off.
