Ethics and Ontology

Journal of Philosophy 100 (6):305-320 (2003)

Abstract
Presents a good mapping of Williams’s argument in the larger context, relative to other thinkers, especially McDowell. With a short conclusion that there is something transcendent about ethical value that ecumenical projects reconciling the naturalist and the realist tend to miss.
