Mapping the Quartet

Mapping the Quartet

Mapping the Quartet charts the early lives of Elizabeth Anscombe, Philippa Foot, Mary Midgley and Iris Murdoch. The website includes historical maps of Oxford, Cambridge and London allowing you to follow in the footsteps of the Quartet and to learn about their lives together.

You can also join the network to connect with researchers, scholars and readers. We hope this will foster new links and insight, facilitate sharing of expertise, and promote intergenerational philosophical collaboration. 

In collaboration with James Jeffries and Ana Barandalla.
