Book Description:

Supplementing the two earlier volumes of his work, this collection is published alongside a volume of essays on Williams' World, Mind and Ethics: Essays on the Ethical Philosophy of Bernard Williams, edited by J.E.J. Altham and Ross Harrison, which provides a reappraisal of his work by other distinguished thinkers in the field.

Review:

"Any sensitive reader will be struck by the force of Williams's vision and the eloquence with which it is expressed." Samuel Scheffler, Times Literary Supplement

"...these essays contain much which shows Williams' distinctive strengths, including his formidable analytic skills and his sensitivity to the complexities of lived experience. His discussion of the ambiguities of blame and responsibility, also found in the first section of the book, offers a fine example of the careful, nuanced reflection which has made Williams such an important figure in contemporary thought." International Philosophical Quarterly

"Bernard Williams is the most prominent writer on ethics among living British philosophers, and this collection of articles shows the unfailing clarity and penetration which inform his style. At their best they provide valuable additions to the repertoire of moral thinking offered in Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy and Moral Luck." TWM
