Luck, Value, and Commitment: Themes from the Ethics of Bernard Williams

Oxford University Press (2011)

Abstract
The essays of this collection demonstrate the enormous influence of Williams’s writings on current philosophy; they are divide into five groups: ethical theory, moral luck, reasons and “ought,” intuitionism and moral knowledge, and political philosophy. In most cases, the chapters do not have exegetical or protreptic aims, but rather develop arguments linked to the projects that are central to Williams’s thoughts on ethics. With contributions by John Broome, Jonathan Dancy, David Enoch, Ulrike Heuer, Brad Hooker, Gerald Lang, Philip Pettit, Joseph Raz, Michael Smith, R. Jay Wallace, and Susan Wolf.
