Mark Schroeder, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Review from previous edition an epochal work ... Parfit's intellectual personality radiates throughout On What Matters, which as a whole presents a gripping and illuminating picture of a single, comprehensive view of the projects of both normative and metaethical inquiry.


Peter Singer, Times Literary Supplement the most significant work in ethics since Sidgwick's masterpiece was published in 1873 ... a work of epic proportions and ambitions.


John Cottingham, The Tablet Parfit's intricate and beautifully lucid book is undoubtedly the work of a philosophical genius.
