Mary Midgley on our Need for (Good) Philosophy

Women in Parenthesis (2018)

Ian James Kidd
Nottingham University
Mary Midgley argued that philosophy was a necessity, not a luxury. It's difficulties lie partly in the fact that, when doing it, we are struggling not only against the difficulty of the subject matter, but also certain tendencies within ourselves. I focus on two - one-way reductionism and myopic specialisation.
