About Bernard Lewis

Bernard Williams is one of the world's most eminent philosophers. He is a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford and is currently Professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. A Fellow of the British Academy and an Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, he is the author of many books, including Morality (1993) and Making Sense of Humanity (1995). From the reviews of Making Sense of Humanity: 'A treat: civilised, sharp discussions of serious issues, spiked with asides which are deep, funny and sometimes both' Onora O'Neill, Times Higher Education Supplement 'In Making Sense of Humanity, Williams takes his scalpel and sets about slicing morality's jugular: free will, blame, moral responsibility, the ability of everyone to do the right thing, and the possibility of a theoretical justification for being good. His attack seems to me to be alarmingly convincing.' Spectatorshow more
