Henry E. Allison is Professor Emeritus at the University of California, San Diego, and Boston University. He is the author of many books, including Custom and Reason in Hume (OUP, 2008), and over seventy-five scholarly articles and reviews.
[Allison's] commentary is the best ever written on the Groundwork: comprehensive, historical, original, argumentatively clear and sharp-witted, critical, very well informed about the ongoing research, stimulating, patient, and even rather close to the text ... a masterpiece. It sets a very high standard for any future work on the Groundwork and it will be hard to surpass. * Dieter Schoenecker, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
