In this anthology, prominent moral and political philosophers offer a critical assessment of Gauthier's theory and its three main projects: to develop a contractarian foundation for morality, to defend a theory of rational choice, and to defend the claim that under many circumstances rationality requires that one keep one's agreements. An introduction sets out Gauthier's project, and Gauthier himself has the last word, responding to the critiques."
