Mapping the Quartet charts the early careers of our quartet. The four women were philosophy students at Oxford during the Second World War when most male undergraduates (and many tutors) were conscripted. Taught by refugee scholars, women and conscientious objectors, they developed a philosophy that could respond to the war’s darkest revelations. You can use the maps on the website to follow in the footsteps of the Quartet and to learn about their lives together in Oxford, Cambridge and London.

The website also aims to connect researchers, scholars and readers in order to foster new links and insight, facilitate sharing of expertise, and promote intergenerational philosophical collaboration. Join the network to share your work and meet fellow enthusiasts!
