Reviews

We say things like 'You owe it to yourself,' and indeed it might seem that if there are duties and obligations at all then they apply to all the people in question, including oneself. And yet other familiar relations of authority require a separation between the power to impose an obligation and the subjection to that obligation, if there is to be any binding at all. Thus, some moral and political philosophers have found the very notion of duties to oneself to be incoherent, while others have argued that duties to oneself are fundamental to the idea of duties of any kind. Schofield's exciting and ground-breaking book not only presents a sustained case for the coherence of the idea of duties to oneself but shows how revisionary taking this idea seriously can turn out to be. * Richard Moran, Brian D. Young Professor of Philosophy, Harvard University, and author of The Exchange of Words: Speech, Testimony, and Intersubjectivity (OUP, 2018) *
