This volume provides a systematic overview and comprehensive assessment of Bernard Williams’s contribution to moral philosophy, a field in which Williams was one of the most influential of contemporary philosophers. The seven essays, which were specially commissioned for this volume, examine his work on moral objectivity, the nature of practical reason, moral emotion, the critique of the “morality system,” Williams’s assessment of the ethical thought of the ancient world, and his later adoption of Nietzsche’s method of “genealogy.”Read more

"Overall, it is a stimulating addition to the growing literature on Williams...I heartily recommend this book as essential and stimulating reading for anyone interested in Bernard Williams, as everyone interested in contemporary moral philosophy ought to be, and commend the editor for putting together as well as contributing to a sophisticated and exciting collection."
