    Morality without God: Iris Murdoch's secular theology --'The dream that does not cease to haunt us': Iris Murdoch's holiness / Anne Rowe --'A story about a man': the demythologised Christ in the novels of Iris Murdoch and Patrick White / Pamela Osborn --Do not seek God outside your own soul: Buddhism in The green knight / Tammy Grimshaw.   The values and consequences portrayed in this book are done with such a skillful hand, that The Sea, The Sea sits head and shoulders above Murdoch's other books, good as they like the theatrical world it explores, The Sea, The Sea, is a showy, dramatic and powerfully effective book. It is Iris Murdoch's masterpiece and a huge reward 5/5(5).   The Spiritual in Art and Beauty. In his article, “Murdoch, an unlikely liberal icon,” in The Guardian, Hywel Williams says: “Murdoch said she hated the ego in all its selfish, sentimental mess and its craving for - especially romantic art- fed the self. But, being human, Murdoch was inconsistent. Her divide between art and philosophy was always breaking down.”.

    'Iris Murdoch has written a book which concerns all of us as human beings. There are pages here that one wants to embrace her for, pages that say things of fundamental human importance in a way that they have never quite been said before' Sunday Telegraph The decline of religion and ever increasing influence of science pose acute ethical issues for us all. Iris Murdoch and Morality provides innovate readings of Murdoch's novels, philosophy and theology. It situates her work within current theoretical and philosophical debates and suggests it is a crucial link between twentieth and twenty-first century writing and theory. A noted philosopher and one of the most gifted and prolific novelists of the twentieth century, Iris Murdoch has anticipated and shaped many of the issues central to current ethics. These include the relation between human identity and ideas of the good, the effect of the modern critique of religion on moral thought, the relation between ethics.
