Iris Murdoch and the Moral Imagination
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The writing of Iris Murdoch has long been of interest to both literature enthusiasts and students of philosophy. The years Murdoch spent studying philosophy at Oxford and Cambridge left an indelible imprint on her body of work, which is widely recognized as some of the best literature produced in 20th century Britain. This anthology of international essays addresses both Murdoch's philosophy and writing in the context of Continental philosophy and postmodern fiction. Many of these twelve essays resist the prevailing critical orthodoxies, introducing instead new hermeneutical theories with which to approach one of Britain's most revered authors.
