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 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 ~litist 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 do~ of barriers between philosophy and other
disciplines and between academic institutions and the outside world.

The Group has held numerous 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.

It welcomes any contributions which will serve these aims.
