Summary
"Best known for her novels and longer philosophical works, Iris Murdoch is also a brilliant essayist and critic. Some of the essays collected here, such as 'Against Dryness', her seminal polemic on fiction and philosophy, have become classics. Through others, such as 'Existentialists and Mystics', she helped to create a new climate of European thought in the post-war years, by bringing existentialism to British consciousness, and subjecting it to rigorous criticism. She has also contributed her own original philosophical thought in the fields of metaphysics and moral philosophy, particularly in relation to the concept of goodness."--Jacket
