This is the first volume of its kind to provide a curated collection of cutting-edge scholarship on the philosophy of luck. Including work from the leading philosophers writing on luck today, it features discussions of luck from a range of perspectives, including ethics, epistemology, metaphysics, and cognitive science. Although luck has long been thought to play a significant role in many areas of philosophy, luck itself and how it figures in certain core philosophical problems, such as free will, have often been overlooked. This anthology aims to provide a synthesis of existing scholarship on luck that will serve to illuminate, reposition, or even solve existing philosophical problems.

The Philosophy of Luck will be an essential resource for scholars of contemporary philosophy and will shed new light on what luck is and how it works.

Duncan Pritchard is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh and Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. He works mainly in epistemology.

Lee John Whittington is a PhD Candidate in Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. His research is focused on the metaphysics of luck and its relation to moral and epistemic luck.
