Overview
This is a collection of essays on Iris Murdoch, who was a notable philosopher as well as novelist. She was and remained an admirer of Wittgenstein, and she taught at Oxford for 15 years; but she believed that British Philosophy needed the influence also of continental Europe, and above all from Kant and Hegel. Her philosophical books have the distinction of exciting a wide general readership as well as students and professionals-and, while they aim at rehabilitating a kind of metaphysics, they also aim to help us with the very practical question 'How can we make ourselves morally better?' This book gives not only an introduction to Murdoch's important philosophical life and work, but also a picture of British philosophy in one of its heydays and at an important moment of transition.
