MEDIA REVIEWS

'This fine volume of essays should be read by anyone with an interest in how ethics relates to metaphysics, rationality, narrative, and politics. It should also, of course, be read by anyone with an interest in Bernard Williams.' - A. W. Moore, ETHICS

'Reading Bernard Williams collects the work of many fine philosophers who have read Bernard Williams with great profit and provides an ideal point of entry for those who have not yet had that pleasure. Since Williams' work is often more difficult than it appears, it is extremely helpful to have a book that offers so many clear-eyed critical explications of his ideas.' - Kwame Anthony Appiah, Princeton University, USA
