Hello all. It's my supreme pleasure to introduce our inaugural featured philosopher: Tom Hurka! I'm especially pleased because Tom has agreed to do not one but TWO posts on his current thinking. His first starts below the fold. (Second to follow on Friday.)
Tom certainly needs no introduction, but just a cursory glance at his body of work shows that he's clearly one of the top moral philosophers of our time. His work on value theory, including Perfectionism; Virtue, Vice, and Value; and The Best Things in Life have certainly influenced the thinking of countless Soupers and others, including myself. I'm tempted to say a lot more, but I don't want to dilute his post with my blathering. So, without further ado, I'm very happy to introduce our first featured philosopher, and one of my philosophical heroes: Tom Hurka.
