According to Stich and Weinberg, Frank Jackson's From Metaphysics to Ethics is, by a long shot, the most sophisticated defence of the use of conceptual analysis in philosophy that has ever been offered. The author agrees but the book is also very difficult. This chapter explores the book's three main chapters, trying to clarify its basic notions and its argument, and taking issue where the author sees fit.
