Iris Murdoch and the Art of Imagining
Full Product Description
This book is first and foremost a study of Iris Murdoch’s philosophical work. It examines how literature and imagination enabled Murdoch to form a philosophical response to the decline of religion. It thus argues that Murdoch is an important philosopher, because she has not confined herself to philosophy. The book also reconsiders various contemporary assumptions about what philosophy is and does. Through Le Doeuff’s notion of the philosophical imaginary, it examines the different ways in which images and imagination are part of philosophy.
