This collection of essays showcases recent work on Hume and the Is/Ought question. There are four distinct attempts to redefine and prove Hume's No-Ought-From-Is thesis in such a way as to evade the famous counterexamples of A.N.Prior. The rival approaches are explained and discussed together with their implications for meta-ethical theory.
