Item description for Necessity, Volition, and Love by Harry G. Frankfurt...

One of the most influential of contemporary philosophers, Harry Frankfurt has made major contributions to the philosophy of action, moral psychology, and the study of Descartes. This collection of essays complements an earlier, successful collection published by Cambridge, The Importance of What We Care About. These essays deal in general with foundational metaphysical and epistemological issues concerning Descartes, moral philosophy, philosophical anthropology, political philosophy, and religion. A hallmark of Frankfurt's work is his crisp and incisive style, which means that these essays should appeal to a wide range of philosophers and to readers in neighboring disciplines with philosophical interests.

Reviews - What do customers think about Necessity, Volition, and Love?

Frankfurt's Second Volume  Feb 3, 2004
Harry Frankfurt is one of those philosophers who have the ability to provoke new and interesting discussions in philosophy. This volume contains Frankfurt's articles on Descartes, a few papers in philosophical theology, one paper on egalitarianism, a paper that corrected John Martin Fischer and Mark Ravizza on whether alternate possibilities were required for being responsible for omissions, and his (important) papers on autonomy. The last paper in the volume, "On Caring," was delivered at the Kant Lectures at Stanford University in 1997. This paper is a much more filled-out account of what Frankfurt takes as caring about something than what appears in his first volume; and this makes the whole volume worth consideration, especially given that you can't get it anywhere else. My suggestion to you is to first purchase Frankfurt's papers in, *The Importance of What We Care About*, and follow up with this set of papers. Finally, read through *Contours of Agency: Essays on Themes from Harry Frankfurt* edited by Lee Overton and Sarah Buss. Understanding the papers in this volume will make the issues in the Overton/Buss volume much more intelligible.
