These volumes bring together important recent works by economists and philosophers on foundational topics; including the idea of utility and the role of preferences; interpersonal comparability and the commensurability of values, the relationship between rationality and morality, the status of rules, rights and norms, and fairness and equality.
These readings collected here provide an overview of the key structural issues at the interface of ethics and economics. This reference collection will be welcomed by all those with an interest in economics and philosophy.
