The Sense of the Past:
Essays in the History of Philosophy
Bernard Williams
Edited and with an introduction by Myles Burnyeat

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"It is difficult to imagine a better collection. The essays on Greek thought and literature, Plato, and Aristotle would make up a distinguished volume in their own right and, together with Williams's essays on Descartes, Hume, Nietzsche, and Collingwood (several of them unpublished until now), they constitute a work I can only describe as an idiosyncratic landmark. What could be more valuable than to see how, in the hands of one of the most important philosophers in recent years, all these philosophers and the questions they ask can illuminate one another?"--Alexander Nehamas, Princeton University

"Philosophical activity, when it comes alive, is precious. This brilliant and captivating book is philosophy alive in its history."--Jonathan Lear, The University of Chicago
