Abstract: 
In this essay, I propose a profile of Bernard Williams focusing on themes related to his moral philosophy. More specifically, the profile I shall propose aims at reconstructing Williams's fragmented discussions about the idea of moral objectivity. After examining his criticisms against the very idea of moral theory, I offer a metaethical framing of his position and then conclude by showing some of his relevant affinities with the ethical thought of the Greeks and, in particular, of Aristotle.

In questo saggio traccio un profilo del pensiero di Bernard Williams, concentrandomi su temi relativi alla filosofia morale e, più nello specifico, ricostruendo la sua disamina dell'idea di oggettività in questa disciplina. Dopo aver esaminato le sue critiche all'idea di teoria etica normativa, offro un inquadramento metaetico della sua posizione e concludo mostrando le sue affinità con la riflessione etica degli antichi Greci e, in particolar modo, di Aristotele.
