    Picturing the Human: The Moral Thought of Iris Murdoch.Maria Antonaccio - 2000 - Oxford University Press.
    Iris Murdoch has long been known as one of the most deeply insightful and morally passionate novelists of our time. This attention has often eclipsed Murdoch's sophisticated and influential work as a philosopher, which has had a wide-ranging impact on thinkers in moral philosophy as well as religious ethics and political theory. Yet it has never been the subject of a book-length study in its own right. Picturing the Human seeks to fill this gap. In this groundbreaking book, author Maria (...)

    Contemporary Forms of Askesis and the Return of Spiritual Exercises.Maria Antonaccio - 1998 - The Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics 18:69-92.
    This paper examines recent philosophical retrievals of the ancient idea of askesis and argues that they face a dilemma. On the one hand, these retrievals embrace certain assumptions often associated with "antitheory" and moral particularism in ethics; yet ancient forms of askesis were based on assumptions that most antitheorists would reject. After presenting a threefold critical typology of approaches to askesis—existential, aesthetic, and therapeutic —the paper demonstrates the limitations of each model and presents an alternative reflexive model, drawn in part (...)

    Asceticism and the Ethics of Consumption.Maria Antonaccio - 2006 - Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics 26 (1):79-96.
    IN THIS ESSAY I PRESENT NEW RESOURCES FOR THINKING ABOUT THE RElation between asceticism and ethics. The aims of the essay are threefold. The first is to highlight the work of scholars who interpret asceticism within the wider context of theories of moral formation and education in order to call attention to the cultural dimensions of asceticism. The second is to deploy ascetic concepts and tropes to analyze contemporary debates over the ethics of consumption and to suggest that asceticism may (...)

    Moral Change and the Magnetism of the Good.Maria Antonaccio - 2000 - The Annual of the Society of Christian Ethics 20:143-164.
    This paper enlists the resources of Iris Murdoch's moral philosophy to argue that much of contemporary ethical discourse has become inarticulate about the idea of moral change qua change of consciousness. Tracing this inarticulacy to the eclipse of a notion of consciousness in three dominant forms of current moral discourse, the paper argues that these forms of ethics neglect the idea of moral change in favor of an emphasis on public and communal forms of moral language and moral reasoning. The (...)

  13. Picturing the Soul: Moral Psychology and the Recovery of the Emotions. [REVIEW]Maria Antonaccio - 2001 - Ethical Theory and Moral Practice 4 (2):127-141.
    This paper draws from the resources of Iris Murdoch''s moral philosophy to analyze the ethical status of the emotions at two related levels of reflection. Methodologically, it argues that a recovery of the emotions requires a revised notion of moral theory which affirms the basic orientation of consciousness to some notion of value or the good. Such a theory challenges many of the rationalist premises which in the past have led moral theory to reject the role of emotions in ethics. (...)

    The Virtues of Metaphysics: A Review of Iris Murdoch's Philosophical Writings. [REVIEW]Maria Antonaccio - 2001 - Journal of Religious Ethics 29 (2):307 - 335.
    Iris Murdoch's moral philosophy has long influenced contemporary ethics, yet it has not, in general, received the kind of sustained critical attention that it deserves. "Existentialists and Mystics" and "Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals" provide new access to most of Murdoch's philosophical writings and make possible a deeper appreciation of her contribution to current thought. After assessing the recent critical reception of Murdoch's thought, this review places her moral philosophy in the context of contemporary trends in ethics by tracing (...)
