The decline of religion and ever increasing influence of science pose acute ethical issues for us all. Can we reject the literal truth of the Gospels yet still retain a Christian morality? Can we defence any 'moral values' against the constant encroachments of technology? Indeed, are we in danger of losing most of the qualities which make us truly human? Here, drawing on a novelists insight into art, literature and abnormal psychology, Iris Murdoch conducts an ongoing debate with major writers, thinkers and theologians - from Augustine to Wittgenstein, Shakespeare to Sartre, Plato to Derrida - to provide fresh and compelling answers to these crucial questions.

This is philosophy dragged from the cloister, dusted down and made freshly relevant" -- Terry Eagleton Guardian "Gripping...it enchants with a clause that sets you day-dreaming, captivates with a stream of thought, empowers with reminiscences" London Review of Books "It is a great congested work, a foaming sourcebook, about life, imagination, tragedy, philosophy, morality, religion and art" Independent "Remarkable... Iris Murdoch has once again put us all in her debt" New York Times Book Review "Anyone who has even the slightest interest in philosophical matters will find Metaphysics as a Guide to Morals an utterly absorbing book" Wall Street Journal
