Radical Philosophy c /0 Richard Norman
Darwin College, The University
Canterbury, Kent

The Radical Philosophy Group grew. out of a 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 interes
in the theoretical work on the left and arecogniti6n of the need, to confront the ideology enshrined in orthodox
academic displines. 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 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.
