Utopias, Dolphins, and Computers: Problems in Philosophical Plumbing

Routledge (1996)
Abstract
In Utopias, Dolphins and Computers Mary Midgley brings philosophy into the real world by using it to consider environmental, educational and gender issues. From "Freedom, Feminism and War" to "Artificial Intelligence and Creativity," this book searches for what is distorting our judgement and helps us to see more clearly the dramas which are unfolding in the world around us. Utopias, Dolphins and Computers aims to counter today's anti-intellectualism, not to mention philosophy's twentieth-century view of itself as futile. Mary Midgley explains the point of philosophy: how to do it, why it is needed, what difficulties confront it and what topics need its attention.
