This is an important new monograph offering a novel reading of the philosophy of Iris Murdoch."Iris Murdoch and the Art of Imagining" offers a new appreciation of Iris Murdoch's philosophy, emphasising the importance of images and the imagination for her thought.This book is first and foremost a study of Iris Murdoch's philosophical work. It examines how literature and imagination enabled Murdoch to form a philosophical response to the decline of religion. It thus argues that Murdoch is an important philosopher, because she has not confined herself to philosophy. The book also reconsiders various contemporary assumptions about what philosophy is and does. Through Le Doeuff's notion of the philosophical imaginary, it examines the different ways in which images and imagination are part of philosophy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
