Towards a unified interpretation of Bernard Williams's philosophical projects
AbstractThis article proposes an interpretive key to Bernard Williams's philosophy. It posits the idea that at its core, his philosophyconsists in the following interconnected epistemological andmetaphysical views: (1) scientific realism, (2) metaphysical naturalism, (3) methodological pluralism, (4) anthropological contingentism and (5) a post-analytical/humanistic understanding of philosophy. These are extracted in the first two sections. The third section provides a demonstration of how this interpretation can be applied vis-'a-vis Williams's critique of morality. The text concludes with some critical remarks on Williams’s metaphilosophical position.
