Behind much of what Williams says here is a skepticism about the usefulness of moral theory, and about the role that philosophy can play in elucidating issues about morality. This is motivated not by a philosophically-based skepticism about morality itself--as a matter of fact, much of the book argues against such skepticism--but by a skepticism about the philosophers' ability to tell us much of substance about how we ought to moralize. What he's especially quick to repudiate is the suggestion that philosophical thinking will enable us to arrive at a better conception of how we ought to think morally.Read more ›
