The article aims to explore Iris Murdoch’s perspective on the relationship between philosophical reflection and moral experience. This relationship is considered with reference to the idea of the «loss of concepts», in order to show how Murdoch sheds light on issues involved in philosophical conceptions of the moral life, such as the possibility to make ordinary experiences intelligible or unintelligible. Murdoch’s perspective is analysed, on the one hand, in relation to philosophical method and, on the other hand, considering the kind of cultural criticism she elaborates. In this context, links between Murdoch’s thought and feminist perspectives on ethics are evoked.

Abstract

The article aims to explore Iris Murdoch’s perspective on the relationship between philosophical reflection and moral experience. This relationship is considered with reference to the idea of the «loss of concepts», in order to show how Murdoch sheds light on issues involved in philosophical conceptions of the moral life, such as the possibility to make ordinary experiences intelligible or unintelligible. Murdoch’s perspective is analysed, on the one hand, in relation to philosophical method and, on the other hand, considering the kind of cultural criticism she elaborates. In this context, links between Murdoch’s thought and feminist perspectives on ethics are evoked.
