    bernard williams is an interesting kind of philosopher-- always strongly suggesting or carefully cautioning or widely gesturing toward, but rarely doing those things that are taken to be the ideal end of analytic philosophy-- firmly concluding, neatly tying up. this, his strength, is ultimately his weakness, too. it's like that with everyone-- which is just the sort of messy truth, the sort of grand unsolvable situation, that he is constantly sweeping out from under the rug. bernard williams is an interesting kind of philosopher-- always strongly suggesting or carefully cautioning or widely gesturing toward, but rarely doing those things that are taken to be the ideal end of analytic philosophy-- firmly concluding, neatly tying up. this, his strength, is ultimately his weakness, too. it's like that with everyone-- which is just the sort of messy truth, the sort of grand unsolvable situation, that he is constantly sweeping out from under the rug.

    اهتمامي بكتاب "مشكلات النفس" لبرنارد ويليامس منصب على فصل واحد منه هو الفصل الخاص بالمساواة The Idea of Equality, pp. 230-249, Cambridge U.P. 2006. وكنت قد اطلعت على جانب من رؤية ويليامس خلال قراءتي لكتاب By Nature Equal: The Anatomy of a Western Insight, by J. Coons & P. Brennan ولفتت نظري مناقشته العميقة للمساواة في معناها الوصفي ، اي تكافؤ البشر كحقيقة سابقة للدعوة اليها. فعلى الرغم من انشغال ويليامس بالتطبيق السياسي لمبدأ المساواة ، الا انه قدم مجادلة فلسفية فريدة في موضوع اغفله كثير من فلاسفة اهتمامي بكتاب "مشكلات النفس" لبرنارد ويليامس منصب على فصل واحد منه هو الفصل الخاص بالمساواة The Idea of Equality, pp. 230-249, Cambridge U.P. 2006. وكنت قد اطلعت على جانب من رؤية ويليامس خلال قراءتي لكتاب By Nature Equal: The Anatomy of a Western Insight, by J.

    The Platonic introjection, seeing the satisfactions of studying what is timeless and impersonal as being themselves timeless and impersonal, may be a deep illusion, but it is certainly an illusion. As usual, Williams is clever and thought-provoking even when being tedious or unconvincing. This collection of essays, mostly covering issues of personal identity and ethics, has some true classics, including "The Self and the Future" and "The Makropulos Case," as well as a few sleepers.

While some of these essays are closing in on seventy years old, most haven't lost their relevance or power to stimulate careful consideration—though I wouldn't go so far as to say that they're ultimately persuasive. His argument that personal identity amounts to bodily identity is almost certainly wrong.
