Iris Murdoch and The Sovereignty of Good


Iris Murdoch was among the handful of mid-20th century philosophers who helped revive the discipline of moral philosophy. She was also an accomplished novelist.


In the collection of essays titled The Sovereignty of Good, Murdoch presents readers with arguments for the substantive nature of the good, the value of attention, and the importance of cultivating our moral vision. Although written several decades ago, the essays can be read as powerful and eloquent antidotes to the disorders of our own distracted age.
