Thomas NagelIts virtuoso blend of analytic philosophy, classical scholarship, historical consciousness, and uninhibited curiosity marks Truth and Truthfulness unmistakably as a work by Bernard Williams. He responds to Rousseau and Diderot. He manages to be frequently entertaining and never to show off. The book is about what Williams calls the "virtues" of truth--that is, the value we attach to certain relations or attitudes to the truth, notably accuracy and sincerity, and including the modern virtue of authenticity.
