On what would have been Mary’s 100th birthday, her biscuit tin (gifted by her family after her death) began a round-the-world voyage. At twelve stops a poet and a philosopher meet to share a conversation and a poem on a theme from Midgley’s work.
In partnership with An Post.
Between July and September 2019 people sent postcards from all over the world to Iris Murdoch’s birthplace, each asking a philosophical question. We selected 100 and sent them on to 100 philosophers around the globe for answers. Browse the correspondence and find out more about the project.
*Launching soon* Mapping the Quartet will trace the legacy of the Quartet as a philosophical school, and map their connections with today’s living philosophers, teachers, enthusiasts and friends.
You will be invited you to share your connections with the Quartet, and to explore the intellectual roots of today’s virtue ethicists, particularists and ecofeminists in the work of these brilliant women.
In collaboration with James Jeffries.
