How miserable we are, how wicked; into the ‘Void’ with Murdoch, Mulhall, and Antonaccio

Heythrop Journal (forthcoming)

Discussion of Iris Murdoch recalls Socrates' plea that he be allowed a crabwise approach to the Good. What his audience want of a direct approach is an explanation of precisely what sort of thing the Good is, where the demand for precision carries the force of: Tell me now, in which of the categories of thing I already allow to exist is the Good to be found? This is just what academia has done with the obscure singularity of Murdoch – and the comedy of the exercise is the same.
