THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOOD

By (author)IRIS MURDOCH

 2,157

Iris Murdoch once observed: ‘philosophy is often a matter of finding occasions on which to say the obvious’. What was obvious to Murdoch, and to all those who read her work, is that Good transcends everything – even God. Throughout her distinguished and prolific writing career, she explored questions of good and bad, myth and morality. The framework for Murdoch’s questions – and her own conclusions – can be found in the Sovereignty of Good. The Boston Review hailed these essays as ‘her most influential pieces of philosophy’.
