Radical Philosophy Group

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 frame of reference
of the dominant bourgeois culture. This culture is supported and mirrored by the elitist
isolation, the internal hierarchies and demarcations, of academic institutions. The Radical
Philosophy Group therefore works for reforms in courses and assessments for the enlargement
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 loval 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.
