A Philosophy to Live By

Engaging Iris Murdoch

Maria Antonaccio

  • Puts Murdoch's philosophy into conversation with a wide array of prominent thinkers and debates in ethics
  • The book proposes a new theory in the sense that it interprets Murdoch's philosophy as recapturing the spiritual or practical import of philosophy
  • Murdoch's work has affinities with recent calls for a "humane" turn in philosophy and with critiques of academic overspecialization in philosophy
