This book by Samuel Scheffler, one of the most prominent moral philosophers working today, investigates morality's content, scope, authority, and deliberative role, and in so doing offers an interpretation of the place of moral concerns in our lives. Morality is seen as fundamentally a humane phenomenon, which neither coincides with the requirements of an enlightened self-interest nor stands diametrically opposed to them.
