  1. I always meant to follow up on Bernard Williams’ later work. His Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy impressed me greatly. I also share his attitudes to science and truth (and side with him against Rorty), and also his respect for the classical world and classical values. But I have reservations about his politics (until 1981 married to Shirley Williams, a former senior Labour politician who helped destroy the grammar school system). He was planning to write about his own personal political history apparently but never did.
