Derek Parfit is a research fellow at All Souls College.
In Reasons and Persons, [Parfit's] clipped prose, with its
repetitive sentences, poetic cadence and sly humour becomes the
vehicle for a depth and range of insight rarely matched in recent
philosophy. * Kieran Setiya, Times Literary Supplement *
Very few works in the subject can compare with Parfit's in scope, fertility, imaginative resource, and cogency of reasoning. * P.F. Strawson, The New York Review of Books *
