Description : This book provides a concise and highly readable reassessment of Iris Murdoch's engagement with philosophy throughout her life and proposes that she was, most importantly, a philosophical novelist. By investigating her use of philosophical argument in her fictional writing, it becomes clear that her narratives always depend upon a strong metaphysical underpinning. Leeson proceeds thematically through the philosophical phases of Murdoch's life and develops a clear argument that Murdoch reacts against the philosophies of Sartre, Plato, Nietzsche and Heidegger not only in her philosophical writings but also in her fiction. Indeed, it is in her fiction that her philosophical argument is most persuasive and accessible. This timely study provides new information regarding Murdoch's engagement with Martin Heidegger and also provides a detailed critique of critics who have overlooked Murdoch's engagement with philosophy within her fiction.

Description : Yet, Murdoch does not hold a tragic view of the moral or religious life. Rather she offers a radical comic vision, one where the confrontation with evil, which is so hard for us to do, releases the natural impulse of compassion that is the foundation of all human connection and higher possibility. Murdoch turns to the novel as the best means to reveal evil, because it offers a truthful vision of what we are like as human beings through the particular, detailed realization of the inner lives of characters. Murdoch turns to art to affect a conversion of erotic orientation in the reader and to transform the moral imagination of the age.
