About the Author

Marije Altorf is Lecturer and Programme Director of Philosophy at St Mary's College, Twickenham.


"A welcome addition to the growing secondary literature on the philosophical writings of Iris Murdoch."
-Sabina Lovibond, Religious Studies, Vol. 45, 2009
'Altorf has created far more than a book on Iris Murdoch - imagery and imagination inspire the portrait of a woman philosopher. Employing the philosophical imaginary of Michele Le Doeuff, Altorf explores the art which captures the originality of Murdoch as a woman who writes novels and philosophy.'
Pamela Sue Anderson, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford, UK
