Clare And Rachael, Women In Parenthesis

We’re working with Mary Midgley, Newcastle’s brilliant philosopher, to tell the story of her and her friends – Elizabeth Anscombe, Philippa Foot and Iris Murdoch. They arrived at University during WWII when all men were away. Puzzled and disturbed by the world around them they developed their own collaborative philosophical practice and practical ethical outlook. Through recovering their work we’re challenging over-abstractness, combativeness and male-domination in philosophy. We'd love to come and speak about women in philosophy.
