Summary:
While offering readings and critiques of various aspects of Murdoch's philosophical work and showing how it has influenced moral philosophy, the essays at the same time make their own contributions to live issues in moral philosophy. Thereby they not only show how Murdoch's work remains alive in the discipline, but also prompt us to consider further ways in which it might become so.
