A study of T.H. Green's neglected classic Prolegomena to Ethics (1883), its role in his philosophical thought, and its place in the history of ethics. Green defends a perfectionist ethical theory that aims to be a constructive synthesis of the best elements in ancient and modern ethics, especially Aristotelian and Kantian traditions. Brink situates the Prolegomena in its intellectual context, sympathetically but critically engages its main themes, and articulates Green's legacy in the history of ethics.
