Aristotle through lenses from Bernard Williams

S. Broadie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper looks at a theme in ancient Greek ethics from perspectives developed by Bernard Williams. The ancient theme is the place of theoretical activity in human life, and I shall be referring to Aristotle. Williams is relevant through one strand in his scepticism about ‘morality, the peculiar institution’. His discussion suggests questions not merely about Aristotle but ones it would be interesting to put to Aristotle and see how he would or should respond to them.
