Interested in

Iris Murdoch, Philippa Foot, Elizabeth Anscombe, Mary Midgley



I worked as a construction engineer and as I got older I wanted to do more ‘arts’ courses. I did an OU degree 20 years ago with some philosophy courses and now I do online study and private reading. When studying the A Level syllabus, it was obvious they weren't interested in women philosophers which got me investigating. 

I’m currently reading "The Women are Up to Something". Next up is Metaphysical Animals. The ‘Book Club’ questions is a great idea. I’d be interested in a "read along" as suggested by the authors if anyone wants to join in? Via email or messaging? 

I read the paper by Amia Guha in Think last year and recently reread it. I also enjoyed the Melvyn Bragg programme about Phillipa Foot.
