Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled Particulars in Greek Philosophy contains the table of contents, preface, a lsit of contributors and the introduction. The late Bernard Williams criticised ancient Greek philosophers, by contrast with their non-philosophical predecessors, for introducing the unhelpful notion of amoral self devoid of individual character. Coincidentally, just before the 2007 colloquium an editorial in the New Scientist editorial referred to the new science of econophysics uses physics-like models to explain the habits, fashions and behaviour in crowds of ordinary people, and is being applied to everything from trading strategies in the money markets to rioting behaviour. Whether the new science had, or was intended to have, any relevance to morality the author do not know; nor sure whether it is a positive or a negative answer to that question that should cause more concern.
