EXISTENTIALISTS AND MYSTICS gathers together for the first time in one volume the most influential and inspiring of Iris Murdoch's essays and shorter pieces - including major critiques of existentialism written in the fifties, important essays such as 'The Sublime and the Good', and her two Platonic dialogues on art and religion. There are also incisive evaluations of the thinking and writings of T S Eliot, Simone Weil, Gabriel Marcel, Sartre, Camus, Simone de Beauvoir and Elias Canetti: and key texts on the concept of love, on Tolstoy versus Kant, and on the role great literature can play in curing the ills of philosophy.

Review:

"Brilliantly readable . . . Murdoch can make the most demanding questions of life accessible and exciting." --The Baltimore Sun

"Existentialists and Mystics desribes the intellectual journey of a lifetime. This book is Murdoch's key. Readers will find much here to stimulate, entertain and edify. No one conveys the beauty and excitement of philosophy better than Murdoch." --Hilary Spurling, Daily Telegraph

"Murdoch, a wondrous writer and a careful student of the history of thought, is endowed a rare talent for philosophical writing--she offers, in accessible prose, insight into some of the great questoins that have preoccupied thinkers for centuries." --San Diego Union

"Tight, graceful writing, and a pleasure to read . . . [Murdoch's moral theory] has a real claim to our attention." --Elijah Millgram, The Boston Review

"A perceptive investigation into the symbiotic relationship of philosophy and literature." --The Guardian

Book Description:

Profound yet accessible essays on philosophy and art by one of our greatest novelists and thinkers.
