David F. PearsDavid Pears was a member of the ordinary language philosophy group at Oxford University in the early 1950's and 1960's. With Peter F. Strawson, and Mary and Geoffrey J. Warnock, while he was still a student at Christ Church, Oxford, Pears organized a series of group discussions for the BBC Radio Third Programme. One of these, "Freedom and the Will," captured the state of the free-will debates in English philosophy just before Strawson was to change the subject from the question of free will versus determinism to the problem of moral responsibility with his 1962 essay, "Freedom and Resentment." Bernard Williams wrote an introduction and a postscript to the radio programs, which were edited by Pears as the book, "Freedom and the Will. Pears was perhaps best known for his translation, with Brian McGuiness, of Ludwing Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.
