Contribution to Book
The critique of the morality system
Bernard Williams (2007)
  • Robert Louden, University of Southern Maine
Abstract

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."
