THE RADICAL PHILOSOPHY GROUP
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 interest in the theoretical
work of 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 phjlosophy 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 Phjlosophy 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.
