This chapter explores Nietzsche’s influence on the work of Bernard Williams. It shows that the understanding and critique of morality in the final chapter of Williams’s Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy is deeply Nietzschean. It further argues that it is not quite Nietzschean enough, that Williams moves closer to Nietzsche’s account of morality in Shame and Necessity, and that doing so helps to answer important objections to the critique of morality found in the earlier book.

Keywords:   morality, Shame and Necessity, Bernard Williams
