Unlike literary critical studies of her novels, it offers a general philosophical framework for assessing Murdoch's thought as a whole. Characterizing Murdoch's position as a form of "reflexive moral realism," the book establishes her contribution to moral inquiry by placing her work in the context of current debates in moral theory and religious ethics. In doing so, Antonaccio advances a thesis about the underlying structure of Murdoch's moral thought and suggests a new interpretive method for reading Murdoch's philosophy." "This study will appeal to those interested in moral philosophy, religious ethics, and literary criticism, and grants those who have long loved Murdoch's novels a closer look at her philosophy."--Jacket.
