Critique Issue 6: The Wartime Quartet Special Issue, 2019

humanistic ----------------------------------------------- mechanistic

Elizabeth Anscombe
Iris Murdoch
Mary Midgley
Philippa Foot



In June 2019, Durham University Philosophy Society’s journal, Critique, will publish a special edition on the Wartime Quartet – Elizabeth Anscombe, Iris Murdoch, Mary Midgley and Philippa Foot – all of whom were peers and friends at Oxford during the Second World War, going on to become extraordinary philosophers in their own right. Midgley records in her memoir that when the men left for the war, the Quartet were free from the conventions of traditionally male-dominated philosophy. She attributed the Quartet members’ later success to this sudden amplification of their voices.
The members of the Quartet continued to associate, work, and live together long after their undergraduate years. In the thanks, dedications and references of each member’s work you are certain to find the other members too!

2019 will mark the centenary of the group and sees a series of lectures on the Quartet delivered at the Royal Institute of Philosophy – these can be viewed on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEQRhXQwUe-1ZKIJmnBvHsw

In consideration of this, the theme for this edition of Critique is the Wartime Quartet. [Up to 26th of May 2019] submissions were sought based on a range of topics on the Quartet, including, but not limited to:
  • The work of individual members of the Quartet (e.g. the relevance of Anscombe’s critiques of ‘modern moral philosophy’). 
  • The relations between the Quartet’s work (e.g. their shared rejections of the separation between fact and value). 
  • The ways in which the Quartet’s work manifests in contemporary moral philosophy, and lasting effects that the Quartet’s scholarship had on the discipline.
    This edition of Critique is particularly poignant due to the recent passing of Mary Midgley and will be dedicated in her memory.

    Durham is one of the institutional homes of the In Parenthesis project which has a vibrant community of student researchers and interns. For more information see www.womeninparenthesis.co.uk
