Iris Murdoch, Philippa Foot


My project "Natural Badness" (2019 - 2024) is attempting to do Philippa Foot's "Natural Goodness" in reverse, drawing heavily on Iris Murdoch. I'm interested in the nature of suffering and two virtue ethical questions: could suffering be the negative telos of human life? If so, can a better understanding of suffering help us to a better understanding of the ethical virtues and practical wisdom? Is practical wisdom perhaps the art of Iris Murdoch's seeing lovingly?
