The Philosophers’ Book Club: Iris Murdoch, Under the Net (Forum for Philosophy)

12 October, 6:00 pm7:15 pm

 

We’re discussing Iris Murdoch’s Under the Net. As both a philosopher and a novelist, Murdoch wanted to exploit the advantages ‘of having a mind on the borders of philosophy, literature, and politics’. True to that end, her first novel, Under the Net, is a comic meditation on everything from the nature of truth to living a moral life.

At the Philosophers’ Book Club, we select a work of fiction for philosophical dissection. Although you are encouraged to read the book in advance, it is by no means necessary.
