This outstanding collection of specially commissioned new essays on Williams's work is essential reading for anyone interested in Williams, ethics and moral philosophy and philosophy in general.

An international line up of outstanding contributors discuss, amongst others, the following central aspects of Williams's work: * Williams's challenge to contemporary moral philosophy and his criticisms of 'absolute' theories of morality * reason and rationality * the good life * the emotions * Williams and the phenomenological tradition * philosophical and political agency * moral and political luck * ethical relativism Contributors : Simon Blackburn; John Cottingham; Frances Ferguson; Joshua Gert; Peter Goldie; Charles Guignon; Sharon Krause; Christopher Kutz; Daniel Markovits; Elijah Millgram; Martha Naussbaum; Carol Rovane
