THE RADICAL PHILOSOPHY GROUP
The Radical Philosophy Group grew out of the convergence of two currents which had been largely
formed by the student movement of the 1960s – on the one hand, discontent, especially among students,
with the sterile and complacent philosophy taught in British universities and colleges; on the other
hand, a revival of interest in theoretical work on the left and a recognition of the need to confront
the ideology enshrined in orthodox academic disciplines. The Radical Philosophy Group has always
contended that these two problems can be tackled together – that philosophical inquiry into
fundamental issues must lead to the exposure of conservatism masquerading as formal reason.

Academic philosophy in this country has generally accepted and defended the f~ame of reference of
the dominant bourgeois culture. This culture is supported and mirrored by the ‘litist isolation,
the internal hierarchies and demarcations, of academic institutions. The Radical Philosophy Group
therefore works for reforms in courses and assessments for the enlargeme~t of students’ control
over their education, for the breaking down of barriers between philosophy and other disciplines
and between academic institutions and the outside world.

The Group has held several conferences, and local groups have been formed which have organised
meetings and agitated on local issues. Radical Philosophy is the magazine of the Radical Philosophy
Group, and has come out three times a year since January 1972. It aims to criticise the current
state of philosophy in the English-speaking world and to encourage philosophical discussion on the
left, and welcomes any contributions which will serve these aims.
